BEIJING, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- China will curtail public transport service in COVID-19 risk areas in east China's Fujian Province, the Ministry of Transport said Thursday.

Local authorities will suspend intercity bus, taxi and ride-hailing service in COVID-19 high and medium risk areas in Fujian.

The public should be informed of the changes and get full fare refund, the ministry said.

Fujian Province reported 48 new locally-transmitted confirmed COVID-19 cases in the cities of Xiamen, Quanzhou and Putian Wednesday, the provincial health commission said Thursday.

The province has reported 200 locally-transmitted confirmed COVID-19 cases since Sept. 10, and all patients are in hospital. Four local asymptomatic carriers are under medical observation and quarantine. Enditem
