The mandatory lockdown in Wuhan, China — the city where the global coronavirus pandemic began — will be lifted starting on April 8, the government announced Tuesday. China barred people from leaving or entering Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, starting January 23 and expanded the order to most of the province in the days that followed.

While Wuhan itself still has two weeks of lockdown to go, some local operations are beginning to get back to business. Two car factories in the city started their production lines again on Monday, according to South China Morning Post.
