Wuhan has conducted 1.79 million tests from April 1 to May 13, according to Reuters calculations based on daily reports published by the city's health commission.

Photographs posted on social media days after the partial resumption of operations showed passengers queuing cheek by jowl in snaking lines to enter the airport and crowding inside it.

State airport operator Angkasa Pura said lines had thinned by afternoon and efforts were underway to ensure physical distancing. Travelers are required to provide a clean bill of health, and a letter from their employer stating the purpose of travel to be able to board an airplane.

...AND IN THE OFFICE

Not removing your face mask even indoors, casual dress codes, and awkwardness over accepting handshakes are characterizing the new normal as financial professionals start returning to the office in Hong Kong.

But above all, there are the queues, as social distancing affects everything from taking the lift to grabbing a coffee.

"It's refreshing to come back to the office, but with so many restrictions, I now wouldn't mind working from home once in a while," said one of a group of bankers who gave up on a team coffee and returned to the office after waiting for a table.

IN WUHAN, MORE TESTING TIMES

Residents stood in pouring rain Thursday in queues of more than an hour to be tested for the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the global pandemic began last year.

State media reported the city of 11 million tested over 3 million residents since April, and will now focus its testing efforts on the rest, prioritizing those who have not been tested before, people living in residential compounds that had previous cases of the virus, as well as old or densely populated estates.

Wuhan has conducted 1.79 million tests from April 1 to May 13, according to Reuters calculations based on daily reports published by the city's health commission.
