A barbecue shop in Wuhan has been struggling to keep its business for over two months after the city was hit by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Wuhan was shut down on Jan. 23 in order to contain the spread of the disease, which has so far claimed over 3,300 lives and infected more than 83,000 people across China.

The COVID-19 epidemic began to attack Wuhan in December 2019, and many people were caught off guard. Cheng Xingyu, the barbecue shop owner, did not expect the situation and purchased in advance many raw meat materials for the upcoming Chinese New Year festival.

The rent for the barbecue shop is 8,000 yuan (about 1,128 U.S. dollars) per month. Although the epidemic was serious, Cheng chose to open the shop in order to survive. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20200407/8139664.shtml#!language=1
