Police escorted a medical team from Anhui Province to the airport to depart the COVID-19 epicentre of Wuhan after the health workers completed their mission to control the epidemic, according to local officials.
The medical team had been brought in to assist with Wuhan’s battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, which originated in the city.
In a video posted to Chinese social network Weibo, police are seen escorting a convoy of buses across Wuhan’s Yingwuzhou Yangtze River Bridge.
China announced it would lift the lockdown on the city from April 8, more than two months after Wuhan was effectively sealed off.
The Chinese government reported no new cases of COVID-19 in Wuhan or Hubei province on March 25, although 1,368 people remained in a serious condition after contracting the virus. More than 80,000 confirmed cases had been diagnosed across China, resulting in 3,281 deaths. Credit: Wuhan Traffic Police via Storyful
