World heritage site, Mount Fanjing, in Southwest China's Guizhou province, exempted tickets for local medical workers aiding Hubei Province, the center of the coronavirus outbreak in the country, for a lifetime, sources with the scenic zone said.

The tourist site has also made sightseeing buses and cableway services in the scenic area free for these medical workers, according to the developer of the site.

A total of 1,443 medical workers of Guizhou province were sent to Hubei to help with the fight against the virus. Since Tuesday, Guizhou's medical teams have been departing Hubei as the outbreak has been subdued.
