After being put into lockdown for almost 11 weeks, Wuhan, the former epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak in China, is finally reconnected with the rest of the world.
China is capable of navigating its economy amid the COVID-19 fallout, and opportunities for the world's largest developing economy are promising in the long run despite virus-prompted challenges, economists and market strategists have said.
World leaders should "temper, not inflame, indigenous nationalism" for a collective win over COVID-19 that has infected over 1.4 million people with 80,000-odd fatalities by Tuesday, experts said.
The 11 million people in the city of Wuhan embraced rebirth Wednesday after 76 days of stringent lockdown amid a national fight against the coronavirus.
China's responses to COVID-19 in terms of providing timely information of the novel coronavirus and international assistance have greatly helped the world to combat the major public health emergency, said Pakistani former ambassador and political analyst Mohammad Aqil Nadeem.
The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a blow to the economy, leaving most shops in Hong Kong in peak hours at least half empty, if not deserted. Meanwhile, cloud economics has been flexing its muscles during the period, when social distancing is emphasized.
