The Associated Press reports:
Wuhan, the city at the center of China’s coronavirus outbreak, has no more hospitalized patients after the last 12 were discharged Sunday, the Hubei province health commission said.
Hubei’s remaining patients were all in Wuhan, the provincial capital where the outbreak took the heaviest toll in China. The 3,869 people who died in the city account for more than 80% of the country’s reported deaths.
“It is a historic day,” said a report in a newspaper owned by the Wuhan government and posted on the city’s website. Hubei has no more suspected cases in its hospitals, though 1,728 people who had close contact with an infected person remain under medical observation, the province’s health commission reported Monday.
The last COVID-19 patient in Wuhan, 77-yr-old man surnamed Ding, was discharged on Sun upon recovery. The number of Wuhan's confirmed cases dropped to ZERO. In the meantime, China's economy is recovering rapidly, and the electricity generation has seen positive growth this month. pic.twitter.com/w3l5JznjvL
