China on Thursday reported its first COVID-19 death in about eight months since May 17. The death occurred in North China's Hebei Province.

On Jan, 14th, the Chinese mainland reported 138 new confirmed cases and 78 asymptomatic ones. Of all the confirmed cases, 81 come from Hebei, including 75 in its capital city Shijiazhuang. The province has 16 active severe cases in the hospital. 

Chinese authorities said most of the patients from this round of infections are middle-aged and elderly people.

Before that, on Jan.13th, Hebei Province saw record daily infections since the outbreak started on January 2, with 90 confirmed and 15 asymptomatic COVID-19 patients reported. Experts said such a high level of daily reported infections, which may actually date back to early November, is likely to last for another week.

Many had been to weddings and funerals or worked at schools before they were confirmed as infected. Some of their travel routes included East China's Shandong and Zhejiang Provinces, and North China's Shanxi and Shaanxi Provinces.

Despite the daily surge, experts urged the public not to worry about the further spread of the virus, as anti-epidemic measures taken by Shijiazhuang in early January have quarantined related patients and their close contacts, adding that a high level of daily reported infections is expected to last for another week before showing a downward trend.
