The lines of masked passengers boarding trains in Wuhan on April 8 had a special significance. They marked the lifting of outbound travel restrictions after Wuhan turned the tide in its battle against the novel coronavirus epidemic following almost 11 weeks of lockdown.

The sprawling city of 11 million people witnessed over 50,000 people contract the disease and more than 2,500 deaths, accounting for the lion's share of the toll in China. On January 23, to cope with the public health emergency, public transport was suspended and all outbound flights and trains were stopped to contain the epidemic.

After courageous resistance, Wuhan is on the way to steady recovery. On April 9, no new confirmed case of COVID-19 was reported in the city for the sixth consecutive day. Public transportation has partly resumed and more people and vehicles can be seen on the once empty roads.
