The Bitcoin phenomenon is somewhat artificial, and a byproduct of trading.
BTC are electronic, and are the electronic equivalent of the current evacuation, per se, from China. Maybe you can't smuggle out a gold bar, but BTC on a thumb drive - yes, you can do that!
So, people are buying BTC, leaving China and, taking their BTC with them, as possible; thus, bidding up the price.

Live tracking the care package of death stupidly being flown by the US state department into Anchorage from Wuhan for refueling.
Local news had an article on this this afternoon, admitting the passengers would be offboarded and medically re-screened here in Anchorage prior to taking off again for mainland US and, shocker of shockers, the ADN site picked today to "make repairs to their comment software" so comments are down until late tomorrow night. There are no coincidences... the powers that be know they're bending this one over and having their way with it and they know the public is vehemently opposed to this horsecrap, so just silence the newspaper comments section to avoid giving people a platform from which to call out the decision makers' nonsense from. Problem solved.
