Wuhan

Wuhan residents have made a dash to leave the city by road, air and train as the city’s 76-day lockdown is finally lifted.

Pictures showed hundreds of cars arriving at motorway toll gates and travellers gathering outside transport hubs in the city, where the coronavirus outbreak first began in December.

Wuhan has now recorded zero new deaths for the first time since the pandemic began, prompting authorities to go ahead with plans to lift a citywide quarantine imposed in January.

Residents were allowed to leave the city as of midnight local time, and the airport is now preparing to reopen to domestic flights.
