CHINA

Mainland China had 11 new confirmed coronavirus cases on Mar 13, the country’s National Health Commission reported, up from eight cases a day earlier, but the number of new infections in epicentre Hubei fell for a ninth straight day. 

The death toll from the outbreak in mainland China had reached 3,189 as of the end of 13 March, up by 13 from the previous day. All of the latest deaths were in Hubei province and 10 of them were in the provincial capital Wuhan. 

Hubei reported only four new cases of infection on 13 March, down from five a day earlier. All four were in Wuhan, meaning there were no new infections elsewhere in the province for nine consecutive days.

There were no locally transmitted cases in the rest of the country, with all seven new cases elsewhere in mainland China imported from overseas. Four of these new cases were reported in Shanghai, one in Beijing and two in Gansu.  

The commission reported that a total of 95 cases have now come in from overseas. 

As of 13 March, the total accumulated number of coronavirus cases in mainland China is 80,824.

Beijing authorities announced that they will send all international arrivals in the Chinese capital to quarantine facilities starting on 16 March, as China steps up measures against imported COVID-19 cases.

The National fatality rate in China stands around 4.0%. 

From the analysis of death cases, the demographic profile was mainly male, accounting for 2/3, females accounting for 1/3, and is mainly elderly, more than 80 per cent are elderly over 60 years old, and more than 75 per cent had underlying diseases present such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and, in some cases, tumor.

​OTHERS

The World Health Organization (WHO) has indicated on 13 March that the epicentre of the global coronavirus pandemic has now shifted to Europe, and there are now more cases reported outside of China daily than that reported in China at the height of its epidemic. The number of new cases imported into mainland China from overseas has also surpassed its number of locally transmitted new infections. The World Health continues to remind all countries and communities that the spread of this virus can be significantly slowed or even reversed through the implementation of robust containment and control activities.
