WUHAN, China -- China's central metropolis of Wuhan opened its doors to the outside world just after midnight Wednesday, ending a 76-day lockdown to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

A team of Caixin reporters -- Gao Yu, Xiao Hui, Ding Gang and Bao Zhiming -- stayed behind as the city was cut off Jan. 23 to document the desperate battle against the virus. They produced story after story showing what life was really like in Wuhan and what really happened.
