"I was frightened a year ago, but things have improved a lot since the epidemic has been brought under control", said a maskless jogger in his 20s who gave only his surname, Wang, one of many people exercising under hazy skies along Wuhan's Yangtze Riverfront on Saturday.

The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases on the Chinese mainland has reached 88,991, and the death toll stands at 4,635. "President Biden looks forward to working with leaders in both parties to position America to out-compete China."Hua, from the Chinese foreign ministry, responded on Friday by accusing the Trump administration of having imposed thousands of sanctions on China.She said Beijing's measures were "completely appropriate and necessary, fully demonstrating the Chinese government's firm determination to safeguard national interests"."We have long said that unilateral sanctions harm others and hurt oneself, and just like a boomerang, sooner or later it will fly back", she said."McCaul's comments fully expose how some USA politicians only allow the United States to engage in arbitrary suppression and do not allow others to justly defend themselves against bullying, hegemony and hegemonic logic". China sanctions US lawmakers, officials over Hong Kong, Taiwan movesBeijing has called for a reset in relations with Washington, after months of disputes over issues including trade, technology, strategic influence, ideology, Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the South China Sea.But analysts said the political consensus in Washington for a tougher policy on China had hardened and Beijing's increasingly assertive foreign policy would make it hard for an easing in the strategic rivalry.Drew Thompson, a former US Defence Department official responsible for China, Taiwan and Mongolia, said he expected Chinese President Xi Jinping would seek to reverse some of the Trump administration's measures on China, but Biden had little incentive to compromise.While Biden would certainly seek to engage with Xi, China was deeply committed to its existing model of governance and its more aggressive and often antagonistic foreign policy, he said."This leaves little room for Biden to explore areas of meaningful cooperation, leaving the two sides to manage differences and focus on reducing the risk of miscalculation and avoiding conflict", he said.

And the city's relaxed scenes - elderly dancers spinning in parks and crowded bars selling "Wuhan Stay Strong" craft beer - contrast with the rolling lockdowns, surging death rates and overwhelmed hospitals overseas. "I feel pain seeing the epidemic all over the world", Huang said.

But there are no known lockdown commemorations planned Saturday by Beijing, which remains tight-lipped on the pandemic's early days amid accusations it tried to cover it up or mishandled the outbreak, allowing it to spread.

"And it is definitely too early to come to a conclusion of exactly where this virus started, either within or without China", he added.

"All hypotheses are on the table", World Health Organization emergencies director Michael Ryan told a news conference in Geneva.

The anniversary was barely acknowledged in China on Saturday morning, with no initial government statements seen and minimal mention in state propaganda outlets.

Globally, the virus has killed more than two million people, infected tens of millions of others and hammered economies.

Now, the activity on the streets attests to an impressive rebound, but some say it remains incomplete.

Xu Jiajun, a 58-year-old street vendor of local foods, drinks, and other items, said times remain tough. "Things have changed", he said.
