Wuhan is set to conduct a 10-day city-wide coronavirus testing of all its residents, as the city recently reported six new coronavirus cases in the same residential community, sources from Wuhan’s health authority confirmed with the Global Times.
Officials from a district health commission told the Global Times that Wuhan’s regulators have asked districts in the city to submit a detailed plan to conduct the epidemiological investigation and epidemic prevention and control. Densely populated communities and areas with high population mobility will be the focus of screening and testing.
The implementation plan has not yet been announced. Specific plan and work are still under further study, and official information will be released as soon as possible, sources said.
