Wuhan water park packed for a weekend pool party as the effect of pandemic slowly recedes

It was not long ago when the rest of the world was still able to follow their daily routine; the images from Wuhan being in a strict lockdown due to a newly found virus were going viral. Those were the initial days of the global pandemic in late December and early January. Those images were early warnings to the rest of the world about the COVID-19 pandemic, which was all set to make its mark across the globe in the next few months.

Well, the tables seem to be turning now. Wuhan, which was the global epicenter for the virus, appears to be doing pretty well now. Recently photos of a pool party that happened last weekend went viral on social media.

The images show people enjoying the party with any worries as if everything just returned to normal. Wuhan had started reopening slowly from early June, as no new cases have been reported in the city since mid-may.

The Wuhan Maya Beach Water Park which hosted this pool party reopened in late June, but more than a month of seasonal rain had discouraged crowds from turning out. Currently, the water park receives an average of 15,000 daily visitors during weekends, and is offering half-price discounts to some visitors, Hubei Daily reported.

While people on social media had mixed reactions to this, anger and despair from a few people is understandable as everyone is severely affected due to this pandemic and has no one to blame. Some people just because of this stared to blame China, or for that matter, even Wuhan city itself as the virus started in this city.

We all should try to be positive in these tough times, and seeing these pictures should give us all confidence that if everything goes well and we can somehow fight the virus, life can actually return to normalcy very soon. Let us all hope that the day where we too can enjoy in pool party arrives soon.
