China’s Leader Sends Reassuring Message In Wuhan
Chinese President Xi Jinping paid a visit to Wuhan, the city where the outbreak is believed to have started late last year.
Mr Xi was seen going to local hospitals and greeting medical personnel.
By going to Wuhan, the Chinese leader wanted to send a message that the government in Beijing has the situation under control, analysts say.
On Tuesday, China recorded its lowest number of infections, all in Wuhan apart from two who had arrived from overseas.
There have been 80,754 confirmed cases in mainland China and 3,136 people have died.
The visit was Mr Xi’s first trip to Wuhan since the outbreak began.
