Outside of Hubei, the province at the epicenter of the outbreak, the number of new cases dropped for the 15th consecutive day, according to the country's National Health Commission.Chinese President Xi Jinping said in a phone call with British Prime Minister Bros Johnson on Tuesday that China's measures to prevent and control the epidemic"are achieving visible progress," according to state news Xinhua. Xi said,"the battle has reached a crucial time" and China had"mobilized the entire country, and adopted the most comprehensive, rigorous and thorough prevention and control measures," Xinhua reported. "Thanks to those arduous efforts, the situation is witnessing positive changes," Xi said. Headlines across Chinese state media on Wednesday morning were full of positivity, touting China's ability to get on top of the virus's spread. One commentary in Xinhua said the fight against coronavirus would"not stop China's march towards rejuvenation."Meanwhile, Hu Xijin, editor in chief of the state media outlet Global Times, tweeted that the country was on its way to victory."Daily new infection cases outside Hubei fell below 100 for the first time according to data released on Tuesday. We are on the way to the victory," tweeted Hu.But experts have warned that it is too soon to tell whether the virus is under control. "This trend must be interpreted very cautiously. Trends can change as new populations are affected. It's too early to tell if this reported decline will continue. Every scenario is still on the table," Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO), said during a press conference Monday.'use strict';CNN.Videx=CNN.Videx ||
