According to the latest figures, 3,869 people are known to have died from COVID-19 in the Chinese city - the epicentre of the outbreak.
Earlier this month, Wuhan lifted a lockdown that had paralysed the city of 11 million for more than two months in a drastic effort to contain the virus.
However, over two million cases of the disease have now been reported across the world and dozens of countries are in lockdown.
More than 137,000 people have died, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University. ■
