Wuhan reports first new COVID-19 case in over a month

The city of Wuhan in China, where COVID-19 was first diagnosed, has reported its first new case of the fatal viral disease in more than a month. On Sunday, 10 May, the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission announced that an 89-year-old male tested positive for the virus after showing symptoms. The patient reportedly has a history of various health problems.

The man’s wife tested positive without symptoms and has been recorded as an asymptomatic case. Several community members were also tested positive and asymptomatic. The Dongxihu district, where the new patient resides, has been put on medium risk level.

The 89-year-old is the first confirmed case in Wuhan since 3 April. So far, the Chinese city has recorded 50,334 cases and at least 3,869 deaths. In mid-April, the city revised its death toll and abruptly increased it by 50%. The United States and other health experts have repeatedly questioned the official figures coming out of China.

China’s National Health Commission also announced 14 new coronavirus cases in the country on Saturday, 9 May. This is the single largest increase in a single day since 28 April. Majority of the said cases were in the city of Shulan in Jilin province, prompting local officials to raise the risk level to high.
