After an extended Chinese New Year holiday to contain the novel coronavirus, factories, offices and other institutions have resumed operation cautiously to keep life, production and the economy going.
Companies began to follow a flexible work arrangement in the week beginning February 3. Many worked from home wherever possible while in some organizations an essential skeleton staff was required at the workplace.
After the State Council, China's cabinet, issued a guideline on the resumption of production on February 8, more people headed back to work. Those providing public services, daily necessities and epidemic control supplies worked overtime even during the holiday and have been hailed as heroes.
