Wuhan’s ‘wet markets’ struggle after virus lockdown | AFP

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to roil the world, China’s “wet markets” have acquired a bad international reputation. COVID-19 seemingly emerged from stalls selling live game in Wuhan late last year. Shut down during the lengthy quarantine that sealed off the city to the rest of the world until April 8, the city’s markets are now fighting for survival as customers have not been rushing back. Meanwhile in Beijing, one consumer says she will keep going to wet markets because they are cheaper than supermarkets.

Beijing limits crowds after surge of people in supermarkets | AFP

Fearing a resurgence of crowds as Covid-19 cases drop, Beijing is not taking any chances, keeping shoppers apart in supermarkets, limiting numbers in parks, and one hair salon is even avoiding doing time consuming hairstyles.
