Last month, hundreds of vehicles collided with each other due to low visibility in fog as debris piled up during repair work on a highway in central China, killing one person and injuring several others. In September last year, 27 passengers were killed when a bus overturned on a motorway in southwest China’s Guizhou province. The bus was taking all these passengers to the Quarantine Center, who had symptoms of corona or were found infected.
