The Chinese city where the epidemic first broke out has ended a two-month lockdown with a huge party.
The event in Wuhan was broadcast over state media - with skyscrapers lit up in bright colours.
A spectacular light show marked the occasion, while people lined the Yangtze river waving flags and chanting "Wuhan, let's go!"
2,500 deaths were registered there - around 80 percent of the country's official count.
People leaving still have to pass a health check - and many shops remain closed.
