Thousands gather at Wuhan Strawberry Music Festival, 16 months after COVID-19 outbreak

Published on : Monday, May 3, 2021

A little more than a year after the first case of COVID-19 was detected in Wuhan, China, thousands of Chinese nationals attended an outdoor music festival. The Wuhan Strawberry Music Festival returned to Central China’s Hubei province after it had to be held online in 2020 because of the limitations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The number of attendees was limited this year with up to 11,000 people attending the festival and there were barriers in front of each stage with security personnel guarding the area, reported Reuters.

In 2020, Wuhan residents survived over two months of restrictions during the world’s first Covid-19 lockdown.

Since then, official reports have shown that the city has nearly become infection-free. The two-day event brought together homegrown artists and groups in Wuhan’s Garden Expo park. Other Strawberry Music Festival events are likewise being held in different Chinese cities, including Beijing.

Karen Woods, a political commentator, tweeted that the people in Wuhan gather for its annual outdoor Strawberry Music Festival. The city and the rest of China are mostly COVID 19 free. I still get nervous when a large crowd gathers with no mask or social distance though. China’s borders remain closed.

The country’s health authority said on Saturday that mainland China reported 16 new positive cases of coronavirus on 30 April, which was up from 13 cases a day earlier.

Since the start of the pandemic, China has recorded 103,649 cases of Covid-19 including 4,858 deaths.
