'These numbers show that Wuhan is now the safest city,' said Feng Zijian, deputy director of China 's national Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

China tested almost 10 million people for coronavirus in just over two weeks in Wuhan , the city where the pandemic began, officials said Tuesday, reporting only a few hundred positive cases. Chinese authorities claim to have largely brought the virus under control but Wuhan officials -- wary of a second

Chinese authorities claim to have largely brought the virus under control but Wuhan officials -- wary of a second wave -- launched the programme after new infections emerged for the first time since the city re-opened in April following more than two months in lockdown.

More than 9.8 million people were tested in the city of 11 million people between May 14 and June 1, officials said at a press conference.Officials added that the 300 positive results were among asymptomatic patients."These numbers show that Wuhan is now the safest city," said Feng Zijian, deputy director of China's national Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Residents queued up across the city at makeshift sites set up under tents in parking lots, parks and residential communities to give nucleic acid test samples -- with roughly half a million such medical checks conducted every day during the period.China does not include asymptomatic cases in its tally of confirmed infections.

No asymptomatic people were found to have infected others, said Lu Zuxun, a public health expert from Wuhan's Huazhong University of Science and Technology.The city found a handful of asymptomatic cases on most days of the testing campaign, which was initially described as a 10-day"decisive battle," but reported zero asymptomatic cases for the first time on Monday.

The virus first emerged in Wuhan late last year, but cases have dwindled dramatically from the peak in mid-February as China appears to have brought the outbreak largely under control.The official death toll in the country of 1.4 billion people stands at 4,634 -- most in Wuhan, and well below the number of fatalities in much smaller countries.

However, doubt has been cast on the reliability of China's numbers and the United States has led the charge in questioning how much information Beijing has shared with the international community. Read more: Yahoo Singapore »

Anyone who believes news coming out of Communist China are deluded. They will say anything to get us to start doing business with them. The definition ofFakeNews. FakeNews fakeNewsChina Too good to be true enough. Specifity of best covid19 tests is 98% . Means 200.000 false negative -Sensitivity is 90% to 95 %. limiting evidence in clusters. covid19 drama: Publichealth epidemiologists advising government are moleculargenetics & biosafety analphabeths

These people that administered the tests are touching the masks. Next test.... I know no one believes this anyways. But how does that not transmit? Yea right! Don’t trust them! Lies I’m sure they’ll be a surge in tourism because everyone believes what China says about the ChineseVirus that has killed 100,000 Americans and infected 1.3 million worldwide✅

😂😂😂😂 Does anyone actually believe this? Just gonna take what they say and believe the opposite as the truth BS a bunch of liars in that Country. There is no benefit for China to be truthful!🇨🇦 It's cause they're swabbing the mouth. Incorrect test leads to incorrect results Still... If my arithmetic and these facts is correct,that’s less than $13 per test. What do similar tests cost in the US? How many test positive? Is there any realistic way to compare or does politics make comparison impossible?

Either the data is false or there is something very dodgy going on. The virus originated there and now they have no new cases while everywhere else struggles Even the US population thinks China does a bit better on controlling Covid. Maybe there is a tiny bit of hope that facts eventually rule.. Safe city then why they are wearing mask?

Anyone that believes this is an idiot Yea ok I smell cap 🧢 This didn’t happen. China lies all the time Bullshit lol 10 million, 2 weeks. Trump... B.s. I don’t trust anything that China says or does. This is g for sure more bs from them. Lol
