Couple 'Abandon' Kids at Chinese Airport After Son Is Refused Boarding Over Coronavirus

By

A couple in China is alleged to have abandoned their kids at an airport after their son was refused travel amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

The city of Wuhan has been put on lockdown amid the outbreak, which has made hundreds ill and killed at least 26 people. Other cities in the region have had travel restrictions imposed and airports across Asia are screening passengers for symptoms of the virus.

But one Chinese couple is in hot water after social media posts appeared to show them abandoning their kids and boarding a flight on their own in the city of Nanjing. A blogger on Weibo claimed that the couple's son was initally prevented from flying because he had a fever.
