Coronaviruses turn dynamic Wuhan to a lifeless city?

The answer is no.

Wuhan residents find various ways to encourage themselves and together get through the tough time. While being confined to their home, these Chinese people set a trend of doing all amusing things right in their living rooms.

Playing badminton, playing ping pong, dancing or even fishing, all kinds of activities can be found on Weibo videos. Meanwhile, some others immediately adopt their sedentary lifestyle.

“I’ve stayed at home for 5 days. Everyday, apart from eating, I’m sleeping. I slept so much that my back and my neck hurt.”
