Coronavirus lockdown eases in China

The Chinese city of Wuhan, once the epicentre of the outbreak, has eased restrictions this week.

The novel coronavirus was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan last December.

Since then, it has spread across the world, infecting and killing thousands and forcing cities into lockdown.

A month after it was declared a global pandemic, China is now easing restrictions as some of its neighbours continue to battle the contagion.
