Wuhan is China's most central city and the capital of Hubei Province. It has an urban population of 7.9 million.
Wuhan is a famous historical and cultural city, a major financial center, and one of the largest cities in China. A flight from Beijing Capital International Airport to Wuhan Tianhe International Airport takes 2 hours and 20 minutes.
On February 21st and 22nd, the number of new cases in China has fallen to less than 1,000 a day. This might be a sign of the tail end of the outbreak. New cases outside Hubei Province were less than 500 in these 2 days.
Many e-business companies are still working from home in order to control the spread of the coronavirus. With the situation getting better, some businesses are returning to normal gradually. For safety, some companies have even chartered airplanes or trains to help transfer their employees away from the general public.
Besides that, some hotels and attractions have been operating since the middle of February, such as West Lake in Hangzhou and Lijiang Ancient Town. Business travelers are welcome now in the biggest cities of Beijing and Shanghai.
