In a big development, the Wuhan train station in China was seen having full-front disinfection work done before it was going to reopen to the public. This comes after China on March 19 reportedly marked the second day with no domestic infection of deadly COVID-19. The virus has at least killed 3,245 people in China so far.

China is the most affected country in the world as many experts believe that the virus originated from a seafood market in Wuhan city, the epicentre of the disease, where animals were reportedly being traded illegally. However, in a relief to the citizens of the country,  a video posted by a leading newspaper showed visuals of the station getting disinfected.
