BEIJING - China's postal industry has basically returned to its normal capacity, the State Post Bureau said Wednesday.

Some 530 million parcels were collected across the country during the past Tomb-sweeping Day holiday from April 4 to 6, up 37 percent year on year, according to the bureau.

By the end of March, 99.7 percent of major delivery companies' outlets in the country had reopened for business.

In Hubei, the province hit hardest by the novel coronavirus epidemic (COVID-19), around 93 percent of major delivery enterprises' employees had returned to work, and 93.55 percent of delivery outlets had resumed operation by Tuesday noon.

The courier sector has handled 243 million parcels of epidemic prevention and control materials as of Monday, with 46,600 delivery vehicles and 522 cargo flights being dispatched, the bureau said.
