Although China has lifted its more than two-month lockdown of Wuhan, the first city to succumb to the novel coronavirus, the crisis is still nowhere near its end. Authorities must continue to do all they can to prevent another wave of infections while working to rebuild the battered economy.

In Wuhan, citizens who can prove their health are allowed to leave the city, while strict movement restrictions still remain in the residential areas. Other regions have also closed movie theaters and karaoke bars after briefly allowing them to open. Meanwhile, Beijing has imposed tougher rules for entering and leaving the capital.
