China says no new non-symptomatic virus patientsChina | 1 Jun 2020 9:44 am
Wuhan, the city in central China's Hubei province, once the epicenter of the deadly coronavirus, has not reported new asymptomatic cases Sunday, the first time since the provincial capital released figures on the virus carriers who have no symptoms, Xinhua reports.
The city conducted more than 60,000 nucleic acid tests on Sunday, finding no new asymptomatic cases, according to a statement issued Monday by the municipal health commission.
Wuhan started a campaign on May 14 to expand nucleic acid testing in order to better know the number of asymptomatic cases or people who show no clear symptoms despite carrying the virus.
No new asymptomatic cases reported for the first time indicates the campaign has seen apparent effects, said the statement.
