Wuhan returns to life after COVID-19 lockdown
Wuhan is the last city to open after a 76-day lockdown barred almost all transportation in and out. It’s where the coronavirus outbreak started in December. More than 2,500 people have died and 50,000 have been infected in Wuhan.
Chinese officials there said nearly all large industrial enterprises have resumed operations. But only 429,000 people are back at these enterprises, or 61% of the employees, due to strict quarantine measures and travel restrictions. There is no official data on Wuhan’s small and medium-sized businesses, which have been hit the hardest.
