One year since the first lockdown in the world: the story of Wuhan city

South east of China

Wuhan, the capital of Hebei county, which is located in the south east part of China, is perhaps the most famous city in the world in the last year.

Exactly one year ago, few days before Chinese new year started the city went in for 76-days lockdown due to the outbreak of corona virus. Chinese New Year is like Christmas in terms of its popularity in China.

Imagine a nationwide lockdown happening on Christmas Eve. How’d you feel? The stress, the despair. You’re trying to go home but the trains aren’t running anymore, and won’t be running again for foreseeable future. How’d you feel? That’s how they felt. Millions of Chinese families sacrificed their freedom to earn a bit more time for the rest of the world to response.
