  • We're glad you carved out 10 minutes to watch our show.

  • I'm Coral Azzouz for CNN 10.

  • This is a big week for Children in Spain, there now allowed to play outside.

  • For the past six weeks during the country's locked down, adults have been allowed to go to the store or the pharmacy.

  • They can only stay outside for an hour.

  • A parent has to be with them.

  • They can't play with the neighbors and playgrounds and parks.

  • They're still closed.

  • But Spain is one of the countries that slowly and cautiously opening things back up.

  • And the nation's prime minister says if the number of Corona virus infections continues to decrease, adults could be allowed to go out to exercise as soon as this weekend.

  • Several other European countries, from Belgium to Italy to Malta, are looking to ease some of their restrictions in the days ahead, and in America, certain states air looking to reopen non essential businesses as well places like hair salons, movie theaters and restaurants.

  • The general rule of thumb in the U.

  • S.

  • And other countries is that stores in areas with fewer Corona virus cases are more likely to be opened first.

  • There've been a number of protests around the world, with people calling for an end to stay at home orders saying they infringe on freedom and damage economies.

  • But health officials have said that if places are reopened too soon in areas where the disease is still spreading, another wave of infections could sweep through.

  • There's still so much that's unknown about Cove in 19 and what it's going to do.

  • The first cases of this were reported in Wuhan, a city in eastern central China, in December of 2019.

  • Today we're joining a CNN reporter on his trip back into the city.

  • It's Tuesday, April 21st and after what guesses?

  • About 2.5 months.

  • Yeah, we're leaving Shanghai team here is ready to go.

  • Said somewhere back There you are.

  • Uh, yeah.

  • Headed, uh, your next stop.

  • So, uh, we'll see what that's gonna be like.

  • Our journey back to the original epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak required weeks of planning while within China some cities are easing travel restrictions, new hot spots can suddenly surface.

  • And so two new lockdowns, which could trap us mid travel for an unknown amount of time but all layered up.

  • And we felt this was the moment to return, and this is our ticket here might be reversed, but you could see it.

  • Take a pictures.

  • You can take it.

  • Our destination set for Wuhan.

  • It's gonna be about a four hour train ride.

  • We've noticed it's relatively full so far.

  • Say at least be half full, which is pretty significant.

  • Given is next to no one traveling for several weeks.

  • Let's get on board here on board the train attendants collect our passports.

  • They try to place CNN photojournalist Justin Robertson's accent Wear my from from from London.

  • It is not just friendly conversation as they want to be sure that we've been in the country for at least two weeks so that we're not potentially importing the virus from other areas.

  • The threat to China now thought to be external, arriving in Wuhan, I'm quickly reminded of the last time we were here, almost three months to the day we'd spend just 29 hours on the ground.

  • When we abruptly learned that Wuhan was going on.

  • Lock down CNN.

  • Share that scramble out of Wuhan with you.

  • Rush, check out.

  • Sparked by a 3 a.m. Phone call.

  • Our rest right now is Teoh.

  • Check out.

  • Get out!

  • Way headed to the train station.

  • As soon as we got word as we arrived, crowds already lined up for tickets stretching out the door for 15 in the morning here and the only way to buy tickets at this hour, eyes in person.

  • From there it was off to a Beijing hotel quarantining before the rest of the world realized you'd soon be doing the same 14 days in a hotel room to make sure we'd not contracted the virus.

  • We continued our live reporting from quarantine, then relocated to Shanghai.

  • And here we were three months later headed back to Wuhan.

  • The lock down was over.

  • But the hesitation remains just as we interviewed an American who has lived in Wuhan since 2009 Way also experienced the increased skepticism toward foreigners like us and the growing distrust of Western media.

  • A crowd of police questioning us.

  • What do you think I'm from I'm from us, but I live in Beijing.

  • It was not our only interaction with authorities.

  • When we return to what some Chinese scientists believed to be the source of the outbreak Juan on seafood market and started recording, police stepped out of a near my tent to ask us why we were there, given that many medical experts believe the virus transmitted from wildlife to humans.

  • We wanted to go to another Wuhan wet market to see what they were selling find, Market says.

  • Like this all across China, this is actually pretty normal one.

  • You've got a bag full of toads, some fish on the chopping block over there.

  • No wildlife here, but some snakes, lots of frozen poultry, along with an array of fresh vegetables and spices, all under the same roof.

  • Scenes like this appear to show the city of 11 plus 1,000,000 residents coming back to life, folks enjoying a game of badminton or just soaking in the stillness, knowing that after weeks sealed inside your home, this is a luxury.

  • And while many of the businesses here remain closed that ones that have reopened are changing up the way they operate, keeping customers outside bringing the products to them.

  • Hotels like ours sprained down everyone who walks inside with disinfectant.

  • The elevators are marked with a safe social distance.

  • They provide a tissue to keep your bare fingers from touching the buttons.

  • All of this, as testing for the virus has become streamlined here before.

  • We left way had to get ours done to and easy appointment to make a quick throat swab $35 fee to expedite the results.

  • And 24 hours later, we were handed the paperwork showing we were negative.

  • And with that, we could then safely depart a four less rushed check out, this time leaving compared with three months ago.

  • Getting in the car edited train, we're headed to Shanghai on the train back, Please carefully examining our passports and test results, allowing us to return to Shanghai without having to do another quarantine.

  • Once again, leaving behind Wuhan as it's slowly awakens in his post locked down era, the people left a bit shell shocked, navigating this uncertain moment with a cautious optimism.

  • Second trivia.

  • A century ago, Remington, Royal and Underwood were all famous brands of what razors, watches, hats or typewriters.

  • All of these companies were famous for producing typewriters, which were invented in the 18 hundreds.

  • Back in the day, when those typewriters were widely used around the world, people were taught to put two spaces in between sentences.

  • So after you hit the period key, you'd hit the space bar twice.

  • Here's why each letter printed from a typewriter took up the same amount of space.

  • So adding the extra space after a sentence made the transition between sentences easier to read.

  • Today, though, the letters in most of the fonts we read or print have different wits, and E, for example, takes up more space than I.

  • This is also intended to make text easier to read, so some argue that the extra space at the end of the sentence isn't necessary anymore.

  • And several style guides from M.

  • L.

  • A.

  • To AP to the U.

  • S government Printing Office suggest using only one space after a period.

  • But if you're old school or you were talk to use two spaces or you just like it that way, Microsoft will attack you.

  • The company's newest version of word will put one of those blue squiggly lines indicating you've made a mistake after each double space following a period.

  • Of course, you could tell word to ignore it or just turn the feature off.

  • But who would have thought there be a war over spacing in the typewriter space?

  • Jeeps became famous for their role.

  • Get it and helping move the allies around the planet during World War Two.

  • But now they're playing a part.

  • In another battle, this seemingly endless line of Wranglers recently rolled through the streets of Atlanta, Georgia, and a show of support for medical workers.

  • Several Jeep clubs teamed up to make this happen.

  • The events organizer says it's the least they could do for those in the front lines of the Corona virus fight.

  • We're glad he could wrangle enough people to take part.

  • You know, they're all four wheel.

  • And while the site of so many express U V's could make you say, jeepers, there is nothing Jeep about the utility of bighearted wide tire people when they've all got drive, I'm Carla Zeus.

  • Some people have their head in the clouds.

  • ST Cloud, Florida where ST Cloud High School is watching today from our YouTube channel.

  • Thanks for doing that.

  • That's right.

it's April 28 2020.
