Wuhan lifts travel restrictions after 11 weeks of lockdown

Wuhan has lifted their stringent travel restrictions after almost eleven weeks of coronavirus-related lockdown

Wuhan, which is the capital of China's Hubei province, has lifted their stringent travel restrictions after almost eleven weeks of coronavirus-related lockdown, according to the People's Daily.

Wuhan was the city where coronavirus was first reported and its people have suffered through intense economic and civil hardship.

Despite this, Neighbourhood authorities will continue to regulate who can enter and leave the sprawling city.

Wuhan was first locked down in January and is emerging from it after only three new cases of coronavirus was reported in three weeks.  

As well as this, China has reported fewer and fewer deaths from the virus over the past few days. It is uncertain how trustworthy these reports are however.

Commerce in Wuhan is reportedly re-staring, albeit with some sluggishness. Businesses are now calling for their employees to come back to work. Images of China's population crowding tourist sites have also emerged, as cities ease up on social distancing measures.
