The Consulate staff and their families were recalled at the end of January.
The work of the American Consulate in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the coronavirus epidemic began at the end of last year, will resume shortly.
The US Embassy reported this on Wednesday.
The US Ambassador to China, Terry Branstad, “intends to reopen the Consulate in Wuhan soon,” Frank Whitaker, the Embassy’s Minister-adviser for public Affairs, told Reuters in an email, without specifying a specific date.
Wuhan, a city in Central China with a population of 11 million, accounts for the majority of coronavirus cases and deaths in China.
