While it might not feel like spring already, given the fact that we’re spending most of our time indoors, it is officially the season of cherry blossoms in China. Before Wuhan became the epicentre of COVID-19 outbreak and the city was locked down, it was known for its spring cherry blossoms among other things. People would visit the capital of Hubei province to see the famed cherry trees in full bloom.

Wuhan University is one of the renowned places with over 1,000 cherry trees scattered across the campus and it used to attract thousands of visitors every year who visited during late March and early April to watch the trees in bloom.

But, since people are staying at home to self-quarantine, several Chinese media outlets decided to live stream the cherry blossoms at Wuhan University.

They have installed cameras at scenic spots around the campus to give people the first-hand experience of this year’s cherry blossoms, reports South China Morning Post.

The live video feed started on Monday and is expected to be broadcasted for 10 days between 10 am and 4 pm.

Multiple pictures and videos of the cherry blossoms across China were also shared by people on social media:

However, 70,535 people have already recovered from the virus. We just hope the cherry blossoms bring positivity and hope to the country at this crucial time.
