Uhan's Transformation: Crowds, Parties and Music Events (VIDEO)

The Chinese city from which the coronavirus spread began to return to normal


Wuhan wakes up from the letdown of lockdown, the Chinese city from where the spread of the coronavirus began.

"During the pandemic, the city was dead. Now we all go out for food and fun. "I think we are coming out more than we did before the pandemic broke out," said Yi Yi, a rock music student.

Although nightlife is booming in Wuhan, restaurant owners, like many business people, admit it will take some time for the coronavirus to heal in the economy.

Unlike other countries, coronavirus has been significantly reduced in China, after strict measures, many months of lockdown and massive coronavirus tests. It is also important to note that few seniors are housed in nursing homes in China, which in many parts of the world are a health bomb.

What remains to be investigated, however, is how China initially handled the coronavirus outbreak, as it has been criticized by the West for withholding data, while an investigation is expected in early 2021, led by the World Health Organization. Health, which will shed light on the case.
