Herebelow is an article that appeared in local press in a tiny paragraph on the last page.
"The people of Wuhan are gradually returning to their jobs.
Gradual reopening of Disneyland or IKEA stores, campaign hospital closures: China is heading for a very gradual return to regularity after a month-and-a-half of draconian restrictive measures over the Covid-19 epidemic.
The country where the new coronavirus was born at the end of 2019 has seen an outbreak of the epidemic for a few weeks on its territory as it spreads around the world.
Although restrictive measures remain draconian, and many locals prefer to stay in their homes, every day as more and more pedestrians and cars pass by on the streets of Beijing.
Traffic in the Chinese capital remains much slower than usual. Public transport remains virtually empty, with very few people on the streets without a protective mask.
But in Wuhan, the 11 million-strong city where the virus appeared, many are hoping for a gradual lifting of the quarantine measures imposed on January 23.
The city's airport announced that some of its executives had returned to work, with no information on the timing of the flight.
Employees at all airports in Hubei province, capital of which is Wuhan, have been ordered to return to work on Thursday.
Proof of the recession in Wuhan, 14 of the 16 campaign hospitals opened for residents have been closed, the Xinhua news agency said. These hospitals were located in factories, sports facilities and an exhibition park.
Across China, 19,000 patients remain in hospital, compared with 58,000 at the end of February.
A top official in the country hinted on Friday that the blockade of Hubei would come to an end soon.
'The day the whole world is waiting for should not be that far off,' Ding Xianjiang, deputy secretary general of the government, told reporters.
Hubei residents are eager to take measures to allow them to get out of their homes, especially in areas of the province where no cases have been recorded for weeks."
I believe that all this will be over in summer, as per the northern hemisphere, that is.
Not sure if it will restart next winter.
Where I live yesterday started total curfew, nobody in the streets on 25th march, national holiday and all shops closed.
The other days the supermarkets and pharmacies remain open as well as a few other shops.
One has to fill in printed applications about who he is, where he is headed to and why, so that if a cop questions him for instance downtown he cannot say he was going in the country or wherever he'd like anyway.
I cannot understand though why they closed down all parks and recreation aereas in the country precisely, forests, mountains around the capital and so on.
It's understood for the crowded places like department stores but forests?
In the beginning I was very much afraid as I belong in a vulnerable group but when I got out and took a walk, all of a sudden I knew I am not going to get sick at all. I'm living alone and dont have normally any acquaintances so this is a plus now.
One does not know what exactly he will face in advance.
Some days ago my sink plumbing broke down. I would not call a plumber as traditionnally I'm fixing this sort of things but I needed an hydraulic cable, did not know anybody having one at his home, me neither, and the hydraulic shops were closed.
The hugiene is crucial now and for a while this οccasion seemed dangerous. Finally I resolved the problem with boiling water.
OK lots of things are new and must be dealt with such as.
I'm optimistic though.
Do not believe economy will crash and the end of the world will come.
