Wuhan, China is the place where the virus was first detected and the city had undergone the world's arguably strictest lockdown, but now it seems that the city has moved on from the virus and is all ready to resume work and entertainment in full swing.

Thousands of revelers gathered in an open air water park for HOHA, an electrical music festival. They were without any masks and there was no sign social distancing.

People were seen waving to the beats of the music shoulder to shoulder while cooling down in hip high water. Some were also seen frolicking on rubber floats cheering along to the music. The women were allowed to pay half-price for admission.

Wuhan had lifted its lockdown on April 8, once the virus had spread to European countries and the United States.
There have been no locally transmitted cases in Wuhan or Hubei province since May.

Despite the stringent measures taken in order to prevent the spread, many countries are preparing for a second wave.

These viral pictures of party goers at the Wuhan Maya Beach Water Park look like the city is very much removed from the outbreak while the world continues to battle the pandemic and its crises.
