Live: Shanghai welcomes the first day of Spring Festival travel rush
On Thursday, Chunyun – an annual Spring Festival travel rush when millions of Chinese people typically head home to celebrate the Lunar New Year with their families – officially kicks off again this year. But this year for fear of COVID-19 further spreading, authorities have urged people to stay put for the holiday. CGTN's Xu Mengqi takes a bullet train from Shanghai City to a nearby city in Jiangsu Province, to experience first-hand what this epic migration looks like this year. In the meantime, CGTN's Liu Jiaxin meets you at the airport, seeing off those ready to board.
