‘Mission not Accomplished’: Wuhan Doctor Tests Positive for Covid-19

A doctor in Wuhan has tested positive for the coronavirus, the first case of the virus being detected in the last five days. This came after the country’s leading doctor warned that the “mission was not yet accomplished.”

The local health authority has reported that the medic works at the Hubei Provincial People’s hospital and was diagnosed on Monday. The news also comes as the Hubei Province, locked down for two months, is lifting its travel restrictions tonight.

China also reported seven new deaths and the recovery of 426 people on Tuesday.

The Daily Mail reported it is still being identified in China how the doctor got infected. The local officials have said they are not ruling out the possibility that the doctor contracted the infection at work.

Since the emergence of COVID-19 in December, Wuhan alone has registered 2,524 deaths, 50,006 infections, and 43,214 recoveries.
