Bejing: China’s Wuhan city, where the coronavirus first emerged in 2019 and which is currently experiencing a resurgence of infections, has tested 11.23 of its over 12 million people, local authorities said on Saturday.

Wuhan reported six new locally transmitted confirmed cases and 15 asymptomatic cases. By the end of Friday, Hubei province, Wuhan’s capital, reported 47 confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 31 locally-transmitted cases.

Wuhan has collected over 11.23 million samples for nucleic acid testing, local authorities said.
