China celebrated the end of an 11-week lockdown in Wuhan with an elaborate light show on skyscrapers and bridges, video shows.
The dazzling display along the Yangtze River at midnight Wednesday came as city officials lifted a 76-day lockdown in Hubei’s provincial capital, where the coronavirus was first identified late last year.
As of Wednesday midnight local time, millions of people are able to leave the confines of their homes once more, with public transport resuming and workplaces opening.
Local authorities, including those in Wuhan, are trying to prevent further spread of the coronavirus by making them fill out a health questionnaire on their WeChat or Alipay apps, then giving them a colored health code — either in green, yellow, or red — that dictates how far they can travel.
Officials manning various checkpoints across the country are checking people's health apps to see where they are allowed to go. Anyone with a green code is free to travel. •
