BEIJING (Reuters) - Some sections of China’s Great Wall near Beijing will be closed to visitors from Saturday to help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, state media and the Beijing government office which manages the Badaling part of the wall said on Friday.

The reconstructed Badaling section is among the most visited parts of the wall.
