Wuhan begins to lift the two-month Lockdown

The city of Wuhan, where the Corona epidemic began, has partially reopened after two months of Lockdown.

The city was put under lockdown in January, with roadblocks restricting both entry and exit after imposing heavy restrictions on day-today life.

But the major transport and industrial hub has now signalled the end of its long isolation, with state media showing the first officially sanctioned passenger train arriving back into the city just after midnight.

People are currently allowed to enter but are not allowed to leave, and many trains had been fully booked days in advance.

AFP reporters saw crowds of passengers arriving at Wuhan station on Saturday, most wheeling suitcases alongside them.
