China has finally lifted an 11-week lockdown in Hubei’s provincial capital, Wuhan, celebrating the occasion with a dazzling light show on skyscrapers and bridges.

According to official statistics, Wuhan has had more than 50,000 coronavirus cases and more than 2,500 deaths because of the disease, which roughly 80% of all deaths in the country.

On Wednesday, the people of the city were allowed to travel, provided they have a mobile application verifying good health, and showing they had not been in close contact with anyone who has contracted the infection.

More than 50,000 people left Wuhan by train or plane on Wednesday, either to go home or to jobs outside the city.

Once the travel limitations stopped at midnight on Wednesday, traffic quickly began to leave the city.

A district police chief, Yan Xiangsheng, said that nearly 1,000 vehicles went through a busy highway toll on the borders of the city between midnight and 7 a.m.

Tong Zhengkun, a resident of Wuhan, watched the light display from a bridge, saying. “I have not been able to go outside for more than seventy days. Being inside a house for so long drove me crazy.”

Zhengkun’s apartment complex was closed after other residents tested positive for the virus, and neighborhood workers dropped off food at his door.
