(Yicai Global) March 4 -- Wuhan's Huanan Wholesale Market, which is believed to be the source of the deadly Covid-19 coronavirus sweeping the globe, is undergoing a thorough disinfection today. The virus-stricken city began the large-scale sterilization work yesterday by clearing away all the old goods still stored in its stalls. The massive spring-cleaning operation is expected to wrap up tomorrow.
