Tourism authorities of Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei province, suspended group tours through all local agencies from Jan. 22 to Feb. 8 as it issued a level II public health emergency response Wednesday to tackle the pneumonia epidemic.

The municipal department of culture and tourism has ordered agencies to cancel all group tours planned after Jan. 30 and, for trips before the date, travel agencies are required to grant refunds to all customers.

The department also ordered local tourist attractions and star-rated hotels to suspend all large-scale activities before Feb. 8.
