Meanwhile, Wuhan's inhabitants will be able to leave their city if they obtain a green health QR code, which is given to people who have not had contact with anyone infected or who are not suspected of having the disease.
On January 23, the Wuhan government forced 11 million residents to remain in their homes when it suspended public transport and all outbound flights and trains. Until then, the coronavirus had caused 17 deaths and affected 444 people in that city.
According to the latest official count, Wuhan registered 2,524 people dead and 50,006 cases. There were no new confirmed cases of Covid-19 for five consecutive days until March 22.
