After 76 days of lockdown, the last restrictions on movement were lifted Wednesday in Wuhan, the Chinese city where the coronavirus pandemic began.
Wuhan’s lockdown became a model for countries trying to stop the coronavirus.
The city’s 11 million residents are now free to go out without restrictions.
The first coronavirus was first detected in December, and the town had been sealed off from the outside world since January 23 in an unprecedented effort to contain the outbreak.
But even as Wuhan reopens its borders, some restrictions within the city will remain in place, and officials warn that the threat of further infections remains far from over.
On Wednesday, healthy residents and visitors were finally be allowed to leave Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, with trains and flights resumed and highway entrances reopened.
