The city in China, Wuhan, which was the epicenter of the Coronavirus pandemic, has been lifted from lockdown after 10 weeks.

The city of 11 million people was shut off on January 23, with no one allowed to enter or leave. Most of the nearly 82,000 confirmed infections and 3,331 deaths in China have been in Wuhan.

However, as the virus has been brought under control in Wuhan, China, the lockdown was lifted.

Photos taken on Wednesday, April 8, show people leaving their homes, all wearing masks, some clad in the white full-body protective suits.

Others could be seen traveling and reconnecting with family and Friends whom they were unable to see during lockdown.

An estimated 55,000 are set to leave Wuhan by rail on Wednesday, officials said, with about 21,000 leaving via Hankou, the city’s oldest railway station a stone’s throw away from the Huanan Seafood Market, an early focal point of infections.

This is good news for the rest of the world as other cities and nations hope the lockdown would end soon for them too.
