Photos from Wuhan, the epicenter of the Coronavirus outbreak, as it reopens after 10-week Coronavirus lockdown

 Wuhan, the epicenter of the Coronavirus pandemic, was placed on a major lockdown for more than 10 weeks to contain the outbreak. The lockdown was finally lifted on Wednesday.
The city of 11 million people was shut off on January 23, with no one allowed to enter or leave. Most of the nearly 82,000 confirmed infections and 3,331 deaths in China have been in Wuhan.
However, as the virus has been brought under control in Wuhan, China, the lockdown was lifted.
Photos taken on Wednesday, April 8, show people leaving their homes, all wearing masks, some clad in the white full-body protective suits.
A lot of people can also be seen travelling as they've finally been allowed to reunite with families and go back to their jobs.
An estimated 55,000 are set to leave Wuhan by rail on Wednesday, officials said, with about 21,000 leaving via Hankou, the city's oldest railway station a stone's throw away from the Huanan Seafood Market, an early focal point of infections.
Just past 6am, scores had already been patiently waiting to board the first train out of Wuhan - a high speed rail to Jingzhou, about 200km away.
Many were holding gift packs which had been given out by station management, who had arranged for staff to stand at the platform holding up red signs that read "Hankou Station welcomes you".
