What started in Wuhan and came to be known as COVID-19 to cripple lives and economy across the globe should have put China in shame but that is not what’s happening. Oddly, after giving pain in the world’s ass, Wuhan is actually enjoying.
While many nations, irrespective of the number of active COVID-19 cases, are following social distancing and all the safety measures to keep the virus at bay. But, on the other hand, China’s Wuhan is hosting parties with no social distancing norms being followed.

A recent report by AFP shows how people in Wuhan are having the time of their lives in a water park music concert with huge crowds. The images are from the Wuhan Maya Beach Water Park where people clearly aren’t following any sort of social-distancing norms, nor seen wearing face masks.
To add to the freakiness, the park was actually hosting 50% more people than the allowed number and was giving half-priced discounts for female visitors to encourage more people to attend the park.
And what more surprising is that people actually visit such a crowded place. Like even if there were no COVID-19, who can really enjoy in a messed up place like this?
Lockdown in Wuhan was lifted in April and since mid-May, authorities have not reported even a single case of the novel coronavirus. In fact, authorities are actually encouraging people to travel to Hubei province.
Well, it’s cool that the country has no coronavirus cases and is coming back to normal but completely ignoring the safety measures is be a big no.
