Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region has fully restarted production and local people's life has returned to normal as the region has reported no confirmed cases of COVID-19 for 23 consecutive days.

But measures still need to be in place to prevent any imported infections, according to the regional headquarters on the prevention and control of the coronavirus outbreak.

To date, 91.7 percent of Xinjiang's large enterprises with annual business turnover of at least 20 million yuan have resumed work, while all centrally-administered state-owned enterprises in Xinjiang have restarted working.

Across the region, public transport, coach buses, trains and planes have all resumed operations, while businesses are gradually restarting operations amid strict disinfection measures.
