Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the coronavirus first emerged last year, partly reopened on Saturday after more than two months of near total isolation for its population of 11 million. AFP saw crowds of passengers arriving at Wuhan railway station on Saturday, most wheeling suitcases alongside them. A top Asian security conference that gathers defence ministers -- including from the US and China -- and senior military officials was cancelled due to the pandemic.
