The number of COVID-19 patients in serious condition in Wuhan, the central China city once hardest hit by the epidemic, has dropped to zero, a health official said Friday.
According to the commission's daily report issued earlier Friday, the last patient in severe condition in Wuhan was also the only severe case in Hubei as of Thursday.
No new confirmed cases were reported Thursday in Hubei and there are no suspected cases in the province, according to the NHC.
It was the 20th consecutive day for the province to report no new confirmed or suspected cases, said Mi.
In the meantime, the number of confirmed cases in Hubei dropped to 47 Thursday, which was below 50 for the first time, Mi said.
In the last 10 days, the number of imported cases in China has gradually dropped. However, there are still reports of domestically transmitted confirmed cases with connections to imported ones, Mi said.
All-round efforts should be made to thoroughly track the confirmed, suspected and asymptomatic cases and their close contacts so as to eliminate potential risks, he added.
