The Chinese health authority said on Wednesday that 62 new confirmed COVID-19 cases were reported on the Chinese mainland on Tuesday, including 59 cases of people returning from overseas, taking the total tally to 1,042.

Up to 55,000 people were expected to leave Wuhan yesterday just by train, according to government estimates.

Mainland China reported 63 new confirmed cases on Wednesday, up from 62 a day earlier, the National Health Commission said.

Earlier this week, a new function appeared on Tencent's ubiquitous 0700.HK WeChat mobile platform allowing people to check if they have ever sat on trains and planes near an asymptomatic carrier who later became a confirmed case.

Many families have been apart since the lockdown began, and now that travel restrictions have been lifted many reunion are happening across the city.

Also on Tuesday, 137 new asymptomatic COVID-19 cases were reported and 1,095 asymptomatic cases were still under medical observation, the NHC said.

The reopening saw crowds unseen since January 23, when China ordered a lockdown of the city and its 11 million residents.

Travel from Wuhan was restricted for 76 days in an effort to keep the novel coronavirus outbreak contained.

Another 83 suspected cases and 1,095 people who have tested positive but show no symptoms remain under isolation and monitoring.

They added: "We believe it doesn't meet the basic principle that no club should be left worse off by this important decision". The Hoops are 13 points ahead of Rangers with eight league games remaining, including the five post-split fixtures.

While the Wuhan lockdown may have slowed the spread of the virus domestically, it did not contain the virus from spreading internationally.

The restrictive measures were issued after provincial health officials reported 25 new coronavirus cases there Tuesday, spurred by people entering China through a border checkpoint.

"I have lived in Wuhan for eight years. We were all stranded here due to the epidemic", Guo said.

"The crew will wear goggles, masks, and gloves throughout the flight", chief flight attendant Guo Binxue was quoted as saying by China's official Xinhua News Agency.

During the 76-day lockdown, Wuhan residents had been allowed out of their homes only to buy food or attend to other tasks deemed absolutely necessary.

After more than two months indoors - with four other people in a cramped apartment - Mr Xu and Ms Peng were overjoyed to break free in Wuhan to return to their hometown, a 2.5-hour train ride away.

"It will be very smooth because we have made much preparation for this flight", Guo said.
