It was ground zero in the coronavirus pandemic and underwent the world’s first — and arguably strictest — lockdown. 

It is the city that recorded the first outbreak of COVID-19 in the world.

Now, the central Chinese city of Wuhan appears to have moved on from the virus, as thousands of revelers gathered in an open air water park for an electronic music festival — without any masks or social distancing measures in sight.

Over the weekend, the Wuhan Maya Beach Water Park was filled with partygoers in swimsuits bunched together shoulder to shoulder, waving to the beat of the music while cooling down in hip-high water; others relaxed on inflatable rubber tubes that packed the pool to the brim, with little space to float around.

The crowded party scene remains unthinkable in many parts of the world still grappling with the deadly virus.

More than 21 million people have been infected across the globe, with tens of thousands of new cases reported every day in the United States, Brazil and India.

In Ghana, we are still living under coronavirus social gathering restrictions as the country has 1,949 active cases with 248 people have lost their lives so far.

But in Wuhan, life has gradually returned to normal since the metropolis of 11 million people in Hubei province lifted a stringent 76-day lockdown in early April.

The city hasn’t reported any new cases since mid-May.
