The Chinese city of Wuhan, where the coronavirus originated, has tested nearly 10 million people for Covid-19.

Chinese authorities claim to have largely brought the virus under control but Wuhan officials - wary of a second wave - launched the programme after new infections emerged for the first time since the city re-opened in April following more than two months in lockdown. They said out of 9.9 million people tested, they found 300 positive cases without any symptoms.

The official death toll in the country of 1.4 billion people stands at 4,634 - most in Wuhan, and well below the number of fatalities in much smaller countries.

The coronavirus is believed to have jumped from an animal to people in a market selling wildlife in Wuhan late past year.

The cost of the citywide testing effort was about 900 million yuan (S$177 million).

Almost 10 million residents of Wuhan city in central China were tested for coronavirus over 10 days.

According to local health commission in Wuhan, 320 people with asymptomatic infection were under quarantine in the city.

The mass testing comes after Wuhan recorded six new Covid-19 cases at the beginning of May.

According to current monitoring and research, asymptomatic patients of COVID-19 are contagious.

But behind the scenes, it was a much different story, one of significant delays by China and considerable frustration among World Health Organization officials over not getting the information they needed to fight the spread of the deadly virus, The Associated Press has found.
