Wuhan residents returned to the streets to enjoy the city’s nightlife as normality returned to the former epicentre of China’s coronavirus outbreak.
Yang Xin filmed this video, which shows a large number of residents wearing masks shopping in Jianghan Road, a famous local shopping precinct, on June 14.
Several street vendors can be seen in the video. The so-called “stall economy” became a buzzword in China after Chinese premier Li Keqiang praised the stall businesses as forming a part of “China’s livelihood” on June 1.
Yang told Storyful that street vendors were not allowed to set up stalls in the area where he filmed before the COVID-19 pandemic. He started to see the vendors appear in the area around two weeks ago, he added. Credit: Yang Xin via Storyful
