[SHANGHAI] China's Hubei province is studying plans to allow people in areas at a medium or low risk of contracting the novel coronavirus to start travelling, state media reported on Tuesday, citing a meeting chaired by the province's party chief Ying Yong.

The meeting, reported by the official Hubei Daily, said that authorities may allow people to start travelling by using a "health code", a mobile-based monitoring system that has been rolled out by many local authorities in China in recent weeks.
