Wuhan, China, lifted travel restrictions on April 8 after an 11-week lockdown that put the city in a virtual quarantine — not allowing people to leave or enter the city — in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
The city, where the coronavirus outbreak was first reported, began its lockdown Jan. 23. As restrictions were lifted, thousands made their way to the airport, train station or cars to leave the city.
Others began to resume their daily lives again amid the new normal following the coronavirus outbreak in China.
To date, there have been 3,213 deaths in Hubei Province, where Wuhan is located, from over 64,800 reported cases, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
