WUHAN TO TEST OVER 11 MILLION RESIDENTS IN 10 DAYS AFTER NEW COVID-19 CASES EMERGED
China’s city of Wuhan is set to test over 11 million residents in 10 days for Coronavirus after new COVID-19 cases emerged despite strict lockdown measures intended to eradicate Coronavirus from the Chinese city.
Six new cases were discovered over the weekend, the first in 35 days. All of the latest confirmed COVID-19 patients did not contract the virus from overseas, fueling speculations that the virus could still be spreading in the city.
Recall that China claims that the Coronavirus emerged from an open market in Wuhan last year.
Authorities in China say they will conduct a city-wide test in 10 days.
The total population in Wuhan is over 11 million. If the city successfully conducts a test on over 11 million people in 10 days, then it would be one more feather added to their cap.
As it stands, Wuhan’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic had been held as a poster child to China’s effectiveness.
Wuhan is not the only city in China where new cases of COVID-19 have reemerged.
The city of Shulan, located in the country’s Northeast, declared ‘wartime control mode’ after an infected laundrywoman spread the virus to 11 others, Global Times reported.
