Coronavirus: Inside a hard-hit Hubei city where 125 died | AFP

Huanggang, home to 7.5 million people, was among the worst-affected areas in Hubei, the Chinese province where the new coronavirus first emerged late last year before morphing into a deadly pandemic. Now with restrictions being lifted, the city where nearly 3,000 people were infected and 125 died is now considered a low-risk area. A field hospital that once had 700 patients has only empty beds, a coronavirus screening clinic sees fewer and fewer people and restaurants are starting to open to people who’ve been stuck indoors for weeks.
