The spread of the coronavirus in China has been curbed, said an official spokesman for the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China, Mi Feng.
According to official Chinese data as of March 29, China currently has 3,509 cases of coronavirus, including 693 cases imported from abroad. The total number of people infected in this country since the start of the epidemic has reached 82,421.
Nearly 75,500 people have recovered and 3,300 have died as a result of Covid-19, according to a statement by the spokesperson for the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic, Mi Feng during a briefing.
He explains that the spread of the new virus is slowing in the country, and therefore that there are currently only existing cases.
The restrictions, which had gone as far as quarantining the whole country in the early hours of the pandemic, were gradually lifted so that “normal life” could resume.
According to Johns-Hopkins University, the United States is the country where the number of patients with coronavirus is the largest today, namely nearly 125,000. In France, 40,174 cases were confirmed on March 29 and 300 new deaths.
