Wuhan City of China reopens for Business after the Lockdown
The Chinese Residents have stayed under very strict restrictions for several weeks because of the coronavirus outbreak. This lockdown had lasted for more than two months in the Hubei province of China.
The city of Wuhan in China is the place believed to be ground zero for the global coronavirus outbreak. The city has witnessed the most aggressive quarantine in China after the emergence of the deadly COVID-19 virus at the end of the year 2019. As of now, Wuhan city is slowly returning back to its normal activity.
If we go by the news reports then the lockdown imposed in China at the end of the month of January will most likely be lifted completely on 8th April 2020.
On the other hand, several countries of Asia had to restrict all the movement of any person who has a Hubei province passport. This was done to control the spread of Coronavirus.
During the past three months, the city of Wuhan had been struggling with the COVID-19 virus attack and around 56 million people in the city as well as the surrounding province of Hubei were restricted to their homes and their travels were completely suspended.
Similar kinds of situations can now be seen in the countries that have become the hotspots for the coronavirus including Italy, France, Spain and the United States of America. Currently, the virus has spread to more than 80 countries of the world and the majority of these countries are now under lockdown as a step to contain the spread of this disease.
In Wuhan city, life is slowly returning back to normal but still, there are many concerns over a second wave of the virus infection. China is not properly disclosing the number of asymptomatic cases of the COVID-19 infection.
The businesses have reopened on Monday and the lockdown will be completely lifted in the next week. Although it will take some time for everything to recover. The Shopkeepers in Wuhan have reopened their shops but the customers are fewer.
There are several limits imposed on how many people can enter at one time. Shopkeepers have set up hand sanitizer dispensers for the customers and even check them for signs of any fever.
The travel restrictions in much of the Hubei province of China, where Wuhan city is located, had already been lifted on 23rd March 2020. Also, the restrictions for preventing the people from leaving the city of Wuhan will be ending on 8th April 2020.
