Wuhan’s recovery offers UK some insight into the lockdown

After over two months of being in lockdown, the city of Wuhan, where the coronavirus outbreak originated, will re-open.

The UK is now starting to go into its own from of lockdown, and so seeing the results of locking down the city of Wuhan can give a hopeful insight into how the UK can get through this global epidemic. 

Freedom of movement throughout Wuhan has already been granted to a certain degree and citizens are still subject to certain restrictions.

And from the 8th of April, those who show no signs of the COVID-19 disease and are completely healthy, are allowed to exit the city if they desire and the number of cases of the coronavirus in Wuhan have fallen drastically.

Wuhan, the city where the virus originated, has been recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic; 73,159 people throughout China have now recovered from the coronavirus. The lockdown restrictions in Wuhan however, have been much more stringent than those in the UK.

Wuhan’s lockdown was put into place when they had suffered fewer deaths than the UK has now.

Having an authoritarian government in China, the country was able to quickly enact much stricter lockdown measures than we have in the UK.

However South Korea is a democratic state and have also had great success with their lockdown precautions. But again, they adopted this lockdown strategy very early on in this global crisis.

Regardless, lockdowns clearly work to aid recovery of the COVID-19 disease, and although it will be difficult, the UK should be hopeful about the lockdown precautions that we are taking as a nation.
