China has recently encouraged its citizens to resume normal living after the country has recorded a steady decline in coronavirus cases. Chinese President Xi Jinping was recently at Wuhan, his first time to visit the city since its emergence as the center of the outbreak.

Given that the President was allowed to go to the province, it’s a sign that the country believes that they already have the outbreak under control.

The coronavirus has killed almost 3200 people in the country. Worldwide, the disease has already claimed 4,325 lives. Almost 120,000 people have already been infected, affecting dozens of countries including South Korea, Italy, and Iran.

In the UK, there are already 382 cases confirmed. Six people have already died. Most of these cases originated from visitors who have been recently to Italy or from people who became infected inside the UK since the outbreak in Italy began.
