OYOGist.com has learned that the final coronavirus patient in one of the makeshift hospitals in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China, has been discharged and normal activities are now resuming in the city.
The coronavirus pandemic that has seen most of the Western shut down as the world economy takes a nosedive started from Wuhan China.
The World Health Organization declared the novel Covid-19 a global pandemic on the 11th of March, 2020.
As Wuhan saw a significant reduction in the number of patients held in health centers that treat the infection, the rest of the world is seeing an uptick in the number of reported cases.
Hubei province reported 196 new infections on Sunday, the first time since January that the number of cases reported daily was lower than 200. The number of new confirmed cases reported in the People’s Republic of China on Sunday was 202, the lowest since late January.
America and the rest of the West continue to battle with a sharp rise in the number of reported cases.
According to CNN data, as of Monday, the 16th of March, the United States has witnessed reports of the coronavirus epidemic in at least 49 states in the country. President Trump, in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus, initiated several tough measures that included travel suspension to and from most European countries.
On Monday, Trump also increased the measures by instructing citizens not to participate in gatherings of 10 or more and avoid eating in restaurants or drinking in pubs.
Most people have been mandated to stay at home and once-busy streets are now deserted.
These efforts have sent panic through the global stock market, with the Dow Jones recording its lowest since the 1970s. Most companies have mandated their staff work from home while flights have been grounded in most countries.
As China discharges most of its coronavirus patients and begins efforts to restart its economy that was shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic, there is hope that the pandemic may not last for too long.
