The fourth episode of Restricted to Ship sees shipyard workers starting to return to the President Wilson as Shanghai moved to get major industries back to work in early May amid the Covid-19 lockdown.

Starting on day 73 the vessel had been in the yard, and 43 of the lockdown, the latest episode documents the yard crawling back to life. Initial numbers of workers are small compared to the 500 plus the ship saw before the lockdown, and they face twice daily Covid testing.

The crew remain stranded on the ship uncertain when they will be able to leave dock, but at least there is the start of some light at the end of the of the tunnel.

 Since the episode was recorded Shanghai has lifted its lockdown on 1 June with a gradual return to normality, albeit with many restrictions in place.
