ince Covid-19 first emerged at a Wuhan wet market nearly 10 months ago, more than 1 million people have died and life has been irrevocably changed the world over. Healthcare services have been pushed to the brink, global unemployment has soared, and families torn apart.

On the surface, life in the city of 11 million people appears to be back to normal – shops are open and people are returning to work.
