That's what freedom looks like! Euphoria in Wuhan after quarantine.

Their relatives, friends, friends of their friends died.  In all families there is a tragic story: death, illness, poverty, bankruptcy.  After 11 weeks of severe quarantine, the "lock" was opened and Wuhan City, the "heart" of the pandemic that has plagued the world is trying to come back to life.


The city with 11 million inhabitants begins to fall asleep after more than two and a half months, it was like a ghost.  The new coronavirus started right here from an animal and bird market and spread uncontrolled across the globe. Today (April 8), a few days after China had no local transmission case, and just a day after the historic "no death of Covid-19" restrictions were lifted.  The quarantine imposed on January 23 ended at midnight Tuesday through Wednesday, and passengers began storming buses and stations, some wearing full-length suits.

But the over 80,000 cases and 3,300 deaths remain behind and the hope that one day the world will look exactly like before the coronavirus.  For now, it's just hope, because there's a long way to go.


Although some restrictions have been lifted by the authorities, many control measures remain in place.  The Chinese were warned not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Those who go to Beijing go through two rounds of tests, and in other provinces, those who come to Wuhan have to be quarantined for two weeks, the New York Times writes.


In addition, everyone is required to use a tracking application on their phone or tablet and to prove that they were not sick or did not come into contact with sick people of COVID-19.  The Chinese system records every place where people make payments and the network of hundreds of millions of surveillance video cameras is famous.

a-cat-spent-40-days-alone-due-to-quarantine-she-managed-to-survive-and-even-give-birth-to-kittens

In the Chinese city of Wuhan, a cat spent 40 days at home alone, due to the fact that its owners were infected with coronavirus and were hospitalized.


 The owner of a British shorthair cat named Le-Le said that his entire family of seven people became infected with the coronavirus on the eve of the Chinese New Year.  By that time, the cat was at the last stage of pregnancy. When all family members were hospitalized, the owner of Le-Le did not ask others to look after the cat, because in his apartment it was possible to get infected of the deadly infection.


 As a result, Le-Le was left alone in an empty apartment.  The cat managed to survive thanks to two open bags of food that its owner had left before leaving for the hospital.

“I keep turtles and fish at the balcony in the aquarium.  There was also filtered water that the cat could drink !, ”the owner explained.


 Together with his wife, he closed all the windows and doors, in addition to the balcony, before leaving for treatment.


 “After that, we had no idea what was happening in the apartment,” he admitted.


 After 40 days, his wife was discharged from the hospital.  She returned home and found that Le-Le gave birth to four kittens and feels great.  However, the pet ate all the fish in the aquarium.

theres-a-test-that-tells-you-if-youre-immune-to-covid-19

Researchers at Oxford have made an important discovery: they have launched a test that can identify, in just 20 minutes, whether or not a person has antibodies to Covid-19.  Those who find out they are immune to coronavirus can return to work and resume their lives. The British government has already ordered 50 million tests that will be ready by June and says it is vital to saving the economy.


 A test costs 10 pounds and is done through a small sting that takes a drop of blood. It works on the principle of pregnancy test: if after 20 minutes two lines appear, it means that there are antibodies to Covid-19.  One line shows that the person is either vulnerable or the test has failed.


 The test was developed by researchers at Oxford in collaboration with a firm backed by the British government.  It wants to produce 1 million tests per week, by summer, and from next year to reach a production capacity of 50 million tests.  The plan is for people to take pictures of the test result and send them to a central unit, where they will be entered into a database.  Those who are immune to the virus will be able to return to work and thus the country's economy would have a chance.


 In the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, recovered from a serious infection with the new coronavirus, resumes his activity on Monday. He was tested positive for the new coronavirus on March 26, he was hospitalized ten days later at St. John's Hospital from London, after which he was transferred the next day, April 6, to the intensive care unit, where he left after three days.
