Villages across China are barricading themselves from the outside world in a desperate attempt to stop the spread of the killer coronavirus that is rapidly sweeping across the country.

Shocking pictures show the drastic steps several small towns are taking, with one town building an entire wall out of bricks to stop outsiders potentially carrying the infection entering the village.

Others have reportedly created make-shift checkpoints to look for travellers with high temperatures – one of the symptoms of the deadly SARS-like virus which has already killed 106 people in China. 

At least 4,500 people around the world have caught the never-before-seen virus, with cases confirmed in the US, Australia, Canada, as well as most countries neighbouring China.
