Various activities have been held throughout Zhejiang province over the past few days to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival.
To curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, many activities throughout the province were broadcast online. This meant that people can watch the boat race, dragon dance and lantern show simultaneously online.
