Covid: Mass testing in virus epicentre Wuhan in bid to curb coronavirus outbreak | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “Covid: Mass testing in virus epicentre Wuhan in bid to curb coronavirus outbreak | ITV News” – below is their description.

The residents of Wuhan, the city in China where Covid-19 was first detected in late 2019, are being mass tested in an attempt to contain an outbreak of coronavirus.

Three cases were confirmed in the city on Monday, the city’s first non-imported cases in more than a year.

Wuhan, a provincial capital of 11 million people in central China, is the latest city to undergo city-wide testing.

China has largely curbed Covid-19 after the initial outbreak that devastated Wuhan and over time spread to the rest of the world with quick lockdowns and mass testing.

The current outbreaks, while still in the hundreds of cases in total, have spread much more widely than previous ones and has reached multiple provinces and cities including the capital, Beijing.
