People are now allowed to enter Wuhan, but not leave. The city in Hubei province was placed under lock down back in January, with travel blocked and drastic restrictions on daily life. State media showed images of the first officially sanctioned passenger train arriving in the city just after midnight.
Most of Wuhan’s subway network has also restarted, while some shopping centers will open their doors next week.
Officials in the city of 11 million people first confirmed they were dealing with cases of a mysterious pneumonia-like illness in December.
Some 3,299 deaths have been confirmed in Hubei province, according to data collated by Johns Hopkins University
