Life Between Wuhan’s Thin Yellow Lines

In February bright yellow barriers were erected in Wuhan in an attempt to cut off transmission of COVID-19. They transformed the city into an archipelago of walled-off residential compounds. It was an eye-catching defense for an invisible foe. They will be demolished before April 8, when the lockdown is set to be lifted, but officials have not announced when those around residential communities can be removed.

The entrance to a residential community is blocked by a combination of yellow barriers,
a shared-bike, and a slogan that reads, “Come back and stay at home today so you can
still go out and come home tomorrow,” in Wuhan, Hubei province, March 23, 2020.
