US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Since being quarantined at the end of January, the residents of Wuhan, where Covid-19 disease appeared at the end of December, have lived in isolation in their neighborhoods, in a state of fear of infection.
Fearing an epidemic, the movement stopped in the 11-million-strong Chinese city, resembling a ghost town. All small neighborhoods are closed with hard-to-cross barriers and are monitored 24 hours a day.
Touring the city has become an impossible task. Mobile plastic and metal barriers have been placed on strategic crossing points.
Sellers and delivery workers were allowed to provide people with bags of food products and food only through barriers.
As for people who want to leave their homes, they must present an official permit and undergo a temperature measurement to ensure their return to their homes.
A number of people affiliated with the neighborhood committees volunteered to ensure the implementation of authority orders at the residential level and to ensure strict compliance with the virus containment measures.
But the day all the barriers in Wuhan will no longer be far away!
For the first time since January, the city with the highest death toll of 3,245 reported, on Thursday, announced that no new cases of the emerging coronavirus had been recorded.
Traffic restrictions have begun. Residents living in “no-risk” areas are permitted to move again in their places of residence, provided they do not gather.
Some major companies were also allowed to gradually resume their business.
