Wuhan residents will be allowed to leave

Almost four months after the world's first reported cases of Covid-19 in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, authorities are now reportedly preparing to lift outbound travel restrictions for residents.

Last week the city reported no new daily cases for the first time, and CGTN cites reports from the Wuhan Health Commission that there has only been one new reported case over the past six days - a local doctor.

This afternoon the publication reported Hubei provincial health authorities have announced residents would be allowed to leave starting 8 April.

A total of 60,323 patients have reportedly recovered from Covid-19 in the province while in Wuhan there are still 4,200 patients under treatment, of whom 1,203 were in severe condition and 336 were in critical condition.

To date there have been 3,160 recorded deaths from the virus in Hubei.
