WUHAN PARTLY REOPENS AFTER LOCKDOWN

The city in China where it all began, Wuhan, has partially re-opened after more than two months of isolation.

Crowds of passengers were seen arriving at Wuhan train station on Saturday. According to reports people are being allowed to enter but not leave.

Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, saw more than 50,000 coronavirus cases. At least 3,000 people in Hubei died from the disease.

But numbers have fallen drastically, according to China’s figures. The state on Saturday reported 54 new cases emerging the previous day – which it said were all imported.

As they continue to control cases coming from abroad, the Chinese government has announced a temporary ban on all foreign visitors, even if they have visas or residence permits. They are also limiting Chinese and foreign airlines to one flight per week, and flights must not be more than 75% full.
