Wuhan, the city where the COVID-19 outbreak occurred, has come back to life.
“I am so excited, I want to cry,” said a woman in the Chuhe Hanjie Pedestrian Mall. The woman, who identified herself by the English name Kat, claimed to be a teacher at the eastern city of Nanjing.
Between 70% and 80% of stores opened; many of them imposing limits on the number of people allowed to enter at the same time, also placing hand sanitizer dispensers, and protocols to measure clients’ body temperatures. A sign posted at the entrance of the mall notifies the measures and near it, another sign is seen with the message “Wuhan is coming back. Thank you”.
“We may have to wait a bit to see when things can get back to normal,” said a saleswoman.
In addition, Wuhan bus and subway service was resumed. The train station reopened, taking thousands of people to the manufacturing plants and transportation hub of central China. On the other hand, the vehicles industries and other manufacturers in Wuhan have reopened, however, it is necessary to resume the flow of components before production returns to normal.
Citizen recognition towards medical personnel has also been visible, waving Chinese flags at them as a gesture of gratitude, while others present them with sweets.
After the hard months in which the population lived in total isolation, the time has come to restore regular lifestyle; marking the beginning of China’s resurgence after overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic.
