It’s been one year since the city of Wuhan in China was declared free of the Coronavirus. State-run media lavished praise on the city and its residents with Global Times headlining its report ‘Wuhan bounces back one year after restart, clears its name from West’s slander’.
This central China city ended 76 days of lockdown on April 8, 2020, and according to Global Times, there’s been a gradual return to normal life with traffic jams, crowded streets and economic recovery. But people still wear masks, there is regular disinfection of public and residential areas, temperature checks are necessary as also health code scans.
Incidentally, the Sinopharm vaccine is produced in Wuhan and the facility is confident of producing one billion doses once a new facility opens in May.
