Chinese authorities lift Wuhan lockdown
Chinese authorities have lifted a two month lockdown in Wuhan, where the coronavirus pandemic began.
It led to over 2,500 deaths in the city.
Travel restrictions have now been eased as the outbreak's been brought under control, and thousands of people have started to leave.
Greg McDonough, who's originally from Listowel in Co. Kerry, now lives in a city close to Wuhan.
He says a lot of places remain closed and life is still quite restrictive.
"People are not going to pubs, people are not going to restaurants - just for take out.
"I travelled between cities a few days ago and security was immense.
"There's still social distancing in shopping centres and stuff like that and very very few people going out.
"So things are returning to normal, but nowhere near what you would call normal."
