Wuhan government in Hubei province, the first place where a corona virus outbreak occurred, said all patients with Covid-19 in the city were discharged.
According to Reuters, a health official declared Wuhan City in Hubei Province, where the first pandemic broke out, and no patients were being treated in hospitals.
The Covid-19 disease corona virus is thought to have originated in a seafood market in Wuhan city, and first appeared in December before spreading rapidly around the world. To date, 2.9 million cases have been reported globally, and 197,872 people have died from the pandemic.
“The latest information is that as of April 26, there are no corona-infected patients in Wuhan City, thanks to the joint efforts of the city and health workers from all over the country,” the spokesman said. Chinese National Health Commission spokesman Me Feng told reporters during a press conference.
Wuhan City recorded 46,452 cases, accounting for 56% of Covid-19 cases in China. The number of deaths here is 3,869, equivalent to 84% of deaths from disease across the country.
Wuhan and the entire Hubei province were placed under a blockade in late January, with roads blocked and aircraft and trains shut down. Residents were also restricted from leaving their homes for more than 2 months. The city is still carrying out random tests to detect cases despite the blockade easing.
Anti-epidemic efforts have now moved to Heilongjiang province in the north of the country, bordering Russia and witnessing an increase in the number of imported cases in recent days.
China reported 11 cases of Covid-19 across the country on April 25, down slightly from 12 cases detected the day before. No deaths have been reported in the last 10 days.
