Covid-19: People use freedom in Wuhan to queue at cemeteries as restrictions ease | ITV News

The first thing hundreds of people did in Wuhan, as travel restrictions eased in the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, was to queue at cemeteries to arrange funerals for their loved ones.

The two-month lockdown in Wuhan will be partially lifted on April 8, but people in the provincial capital of Hubei can now move around, but not leave.

Queues formed outside supermarkets in the city and tragically, outside cemeteries.

Thousands of families are finally getting the chance to collect the remains of their relatives.
