Beijing’s epidemic situation is under control and the number of new cases is expected to drop in the coming days, said Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, on Thursday (Jun 18).
Although Beijing has been reporting confirmed cases every day, this does not mean that all cases are newly infected, Wu told a press conference.
The 21 cases that Beijing reported on Wednesday were basically infected before Jun 12, Wu said.
The expert added that there may be new virus cases in coming days, but the number would dwindle.
