Today, the Chinese authorities officially issued a statement stating that quarantine, which had been in force in Hubei for more than two months, is finally being lifted. Restrictions on movement, as well as on entry and exit from Hubei Province will be lifted today at midnight local time.
The statement of the State Health Committee of the region also contains information that the restrictions will be lifted on April 8 in the administrative center of the province of Wuhan. On this day, Wuhan will remove restrictions on transit roads and restore transport links.
Quarantine in Wuhan and Hubei Province has been in effect since January 23. The city of Wuhan, which is considered the epicenter of the spread of coronavirus, can completely clear itself of infection by the end of this month.
Authorities add that despite quarantine termination, actions to prevent possible new outbreaks will continue to be strictly enforced.
A couple of days ago, the Commerce Department of the South China Hainan Province confirmed that all large foreign trade companies with foreign capital resumed work by the middle of this month.
