Authorities in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the coronavirus pandemic occurred last December, have not registered new asymptomatic infections for the first time in two months after a massive COVID-19 test.

Of the 60,000 people tested on Sunday, not a single new case of coronavirus was registered, according to the Wuhan Health Department, which is trying to test its entire population, around 11 million people. .

In the past two weeks, authorities have found 200 cases of “silent” or asymptomatic, infected people who have no symptoms but can spread to others, according to The Straits Times.

Asymptomatic cases have been a global problem in the detection and control of pandemics and it is one of the main reasons why the virus is transmitted so quickly.

According to the government, 80 percent of the 4,600 deaths that the pandemic left in China have been registered in Wuhan. This shows that the number of asymptomatic people has dropped significantly since mass tests began.
