China shuts schools, temples, as virus death toll rises to 25TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_Some famous temples have closed due to virus. Beijing's Lama Temple, where people make offerings for the New Year, will close from Friday.

School closures have been extended from one week to three to cover the virus' incubation period of two weeks.
