Photos of Wuhan's vibrant nightlife show the city where the COVID-19 pandemic began is reveling in its newfound freedom

People in Wuhan, China are out on the streets partying without a mask, which gives the impression that life in the city is basically back to normal.
Wuhan, where the coronavirus is believed to have originated, lifted its lockdown seven months ago.
Party-goers are making the most of their freedom, according to a series of photos Aly Song took on Dec. 12 and posted by Reuters.
They celebrate in large groups without a mask, enjoy street food and play with toy guns late into the night.
"After witnessing the first wave of epidemics in Wuhan and then the liberation, I feel like I have a second life," 29-year-old Zhang Qiong told Reuters.
The city was locked for 76 days from January 23 to April 8, and has no reported case of COVID-19 since May 10.
Meanwhile, other countries like the UK, the US and Italy are facing tighter measures and further bans as cases and infection rates rise.
