Thousands of Chinese attend a music festival hosted in Wuhan’s open-air water park



It seems as if normal life has been restored in Wuhan, the epicenter of the Novel Coronavirus. Life has taken unprecedented turns since the first case of the COVID-19 was detected in Wuhan in December 2019. The deadly virus that spread like wildfire to 213 countries and territories around the world shows no sign of waning. It has infected 22.4 million people so far, taking away 791K lives.

While the situation in countries like the United States, Brazil, and India is aggravating with each passing day, China seems to be edging towards recuperation. The electronic music festival held at Maya Beach Water Park in Wuhan was attended by thousands of Chinese who revelled at the party. In the pictures and videos (widely being shared on the Internet), one can see a sea of people in swimsuits and life jackets frolicking in the waist-deep water, relaxing on the inflatable rubber tubes, and cheering the performers.  

The pictures of this jam-packed pool party have raised quite a few eyebrows for ditching the social distancing norms and mask-wearing practices. However, Chinese media asserts that there is no cause for concern as Wuhan is now a COVID-free city and it hasn’t reported any new cases since mid-May.

Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, lifted its strict 76-day lockdown in early April. In a bid to promote the tourism and local economy, the Hubei government is offering free entry to 400 tourist sites across the province. Maya Beach Water Park, one of the popular recreation spots in Wuhan, was reopened to the public in June. It has been offering massive discounts to female visitors since June. Currently, an average of 15,000 people visit this water park during weekends.
