The city of Wuhan, where the global pandemic is believed to have started, is slowly returning to normal as authorities claim there has not been a case of community transmission since the month of May

Dancefloors accross the Chinese innercity are packed with crowds of young individuals where the Covid-19 pandemic is believed to have originated. Party goers were pictured getting up close and personal with each other in a manner which is currently banned across large parts of the globe because they do not respect social distancing measures.

The Chinese government claims is has virtually wiped out the deadly virus, which is causing chaos across the rest of the world, since there have been no community transmissions in Wuhan - where a mass testing programme was launched for the city's entire 11 million population - since May. China also claims to have gone 33 days without any new cases.

The number of flights entering and leaving Wuhan, where the pandemic is believed to have started in a wet market, have returned to pre-pandemic levels, it was confirmed this week.

Despite no new cases appearing in Wuhan, China claims it should have a vaccine ready for public use by November this year. Guizhen Wu, the chief biosafety expert at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said she was injected in April and has experienced no side effects.

This announcement came following news China has been injecting tens of thousands of its citizens with experimental Covid-19 vaccines. This apparently has been happening despite expert concerns over the safety of the drugs that have not completed standard testing. Ms. Wu told state TV this week: "So far, among the people who were vaccinated, no one has been sick with the disease."So far, [the vaccination scheme] works very well. No side effects occurred."
