Wuhan, the epicenter of the CCP virus outbreak, is the ninth most populous city in China. Ever since the lockdown, millions of people’s livelihood has been severely impacted.

Food services in Wuhan have suffered heavy losses. Businesses were suspended during the pandemic while supplies were stocked and deposits made for food reservations were returned. The estimated daily operating income loss was over one billion yuan ($142 million).

On April 3, the owners of 150 food and drink businesses in Wuhan sent a petition letter to the local authorities asking for relief. However, no officials were available to accept the letter.
