At a press conference held by the State Council inter-agency task force on COVID-19 outbreak on the afternoon of 4 March, Mr. Mi Feng, a spokesperson of the National Health Commission and Deputy Director-General for Communications noted that as of 3 March, the cure rates of confirmed cases had been on the rise for the 19th consecutive day, with the figure reaching 50.2% in Wuhan, 76.8% in other parts of Hubei and 87.3% in other provinces. In the coming weeks, it is important to lock in treatment gains, further improve the therapeutic solutions, harness the strengths of both traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine, closely monitor and provide all-round care to patients in severe or critical conditions, so as to further increase the cure rate and lower the case fatality rate.
