Tens of thousands of people leave the city after lifting the quarantine regime.
Authorities in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the new coronavirus first appeared, lifted the quarantine regime that had been in effect for 76 days on Wednesday, opening up rail and road traffic to leave the city.
As reported by Chinese state media, police in China, began to soften restrictions of the road about two weeks ago. According to police forecasts, the number of people leaving the city on Wednesday may reach 1.8 million.
According to the authorities, the traffic regime is gradually returning to normal: 54 trains are expected to arrive in Wuhan on Wednesday. The railway administration will limit the number of passengers on trains so that they can keep their distance.
When boarding a train, passengers must also take their temperature and show a green “health code” on their mobile phones, indicating that they are not ill.
Getting the code depends in part on whether their area is declared virus-free. Many travelers from Wuhan will also have to serve two-week quarantine on arrival at their destination.
According to the forecasts of the authorities, about 55,000 passengers will leave the city on trains on Wednesday.
