China has the first coronavirus-related death in May. The death, the first in eight months, was recorded in Hebei Province. China’s National Health Commission did not provide further details.
China has made great efforts to avoid the recurrence of Covid-19 cases in recent weeks, but 138 infections were recorded on Thursday, writes Daily Mail.
Moreover, infections in Heilongjiang Province have almost tripled. In fact, Heilongjiang, which has more than 37 million inhabitants, declared a state of emergency and urged residents not to leave the province unless absolutely necessary.
China’s National Health Commission said 124 of the new cases were local infections, with 81 reported in Hebei Province around Beijing and 43 in Heilongjiang.
The new wave of infections comes before the Chinese New Year holidays, when hundreds of millions of people go to their hometowns. Beijing authorities have already canceled Chinese New Year holidays in several provinces following the detection of restricted outbreaks of COVID-19.
