fter two months of public transportation lockdown, buses have begun to resume service in Wuhan.
The original epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, Wuhan went into full lockdown on January 23 with all outbound connections cut off as well as public transit options within the city.
Over the next two months, more than 50,000 people were infected with the Covid-19 virus in Wuhan while over 2,500 died from the disease.
However, the Hubei capital has now only reported a single new coronavirus case over the past week and officials are gearing up for a return to normalcy.
While the ban on outbound travel won’t be lifted in Wuhan until April 8, a total of 117 city bus lines were restored on Wednesday to help people start going back to work.
Along with a driver, a “safety supervisor” will be on each bus, tasked with ensuring that all passengers have green health QR codes or valid health certificates before getting on board. All passengers must now register with their real names.
