Coronavirus cases still emerge in Wuhan despite official figures

Virus-hunting squad finds untallied asymptomatic persons every day

Despite official figures reporting few to no new domestic COVID-19 cases on the Chinese mainland in recent days, authorities continue to detect more infections, with those in the city at the heart of the country's outbreak often amounting to more than a dozen a day, Caixin has learned.

According to a member of the infectious disease prevention and control team in Wuhan, every day the city continues to record "several or more than a dozen asymptomatic infected individuals," or people that test positive for the new coronavirus but do not feel ill and are excluded from published numbers.
