WUHAN: The first coronavirus case was reported in Wuhan in December 2019 and is the place where the global coronavirus epidemic first started. News is that the officials of Wuhan are now going to test its entire population of 11 million people as the central Chinese city reported a few new COVID-19 infections after the lockdown was lifted for the first time.

A notice released in the state reads as, "Each district should make plans and arrangements to conduct nucleic acid tests on the entire population in its jurisdiction within a 10-day time limit."

A total of six new cases were reported on Sunday and Monday from a residential compound in Dongxihu District. But an official from the Dongxihu District epidemic prevention and control commanding office told the news agency that they have not yet received any news about the notice.

China made all its efforts to control the spread of the virus, but the second wave is likely to hit the country again as it has lifted the lockdown and restrictions across the country. Virus clusters have appeared in recent weeks in the north-eastern provinces of Jilin and Heilongjiang, which border Russia. Mi Feng, spokesman for the National Health Commission asserted that, “Seven provinces reported new infections over the past 14 days, and clustered cases were continuing to increase.”
