"I feel inactive staying at home. I used to dance in many public places. But now I don't dare to go out," said Chen Lanying.

The 72-year-old lives with her family at Shuimo Juangjun, a residential compound in Wuhan where only people who perform jobs deemed essential for the city to function are allowed to go out and those who are allowed to leave have to register and have their temperature checked on both exit and entry.

Authorities have ramped up restrictions and measures in recent weeks in Wuhan, as China scrambles to contain an outbreak which had by Tuesday killed nearly 1,900 people and infected over 70,000 while weakening the economy.

Lanying and her husband watch TV for more entertainment and say they've become accustomed to their new lifestyle with their grandson, Tian Yihan, who is gearing up for this summer's gaokao, the Chinese university entrance exam.
