Cases are falling in China
COVID-19 first spread rapidly when it first emerged from Wuhan, China, in late December 2019.
However, after three months, cases are slowly declining across China showing that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Robert Shmerling, MD, faculty editor for Harvard Publisher, wrote: “Wuhan province (site of the very first cases) has just reported no new local cases for the first time since the outbreak began. The only new cases were ‘imported’ from travellers arriving there.
“While actual numbers are hard to verify, and the methods these countries used to contain infection, such as aggressive diagnostic testing and strict isolation measures, are unlikely to be practical or acceptable everywhere, if the number of new cases in China is truly declining, that’s a good thing and suggests that efforts to contain the spread of this infection can be successful.”
