Small villages in China are barricading themselves in against the coronavirus. They are not acting on government orders but taking matters into their own hands.

Villagers have set up checkpoints that mimic the official versions you have to cross as you enter the province, screening people's temperatures.

Handwritten signs at street entrances say: "No outsiders allowed in." Others have taken it further: at Xikangzhuang village in Baoding, they have built entire walls out of brick.
