Wuhan performed 6.5 million Coronavirus tests in nine days

The central Chinese city, Wuhan, conducted more than 6.5 million coronavirus tests in 9 days, according to state media, a drastic move by the authorities to prevent a second wave of infections in the epicenter of global pandemic.

The test across the city of Wuhan came after six new cases surfaced in a residential community earlier this month – the first time local infections were reported leaving the city since the blockade in April.

From May 15 to May 23, samples were collected from more than nine million people, according to China’s state broadcaster CCTV, which accounts for more than 80 percent of the city’s 11 million people.
