8 out of every 10 people in China are infected with Covid-19.
The claim was made by Wu Xunyu, head of the epidemiology department of China’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in a post on the social media site Weibo.
He said that during the recent wave of Covid-19, 80 percent of the Chinese population was exposed to the disease.
His claim came as fears of a Covid-19 outbreak during China’s Lunar New Year holiday are growing.
Wu Xunyu dismissed these concerns, saying it did not seem possible because too many people were already exposed to the disease in the country of more than 1.4 billion people.
He said that the chances of re-spreading of Covid-19 in the next 2 to 3 months are very low.
It was previously reported that China recorded about 13,000 new deaths from the corona virus from January 13 to 19, with those deaths not including deaths at home.
According to the news agency, since the lifting of restrictions on the corona virus, there has been an influx of corona patients in Chinese hospitals, for which experts have already warned that the wave of Covid-19 is on the rise in China.
The news agency further reported that about 60,000 deaths were reported in hospitals in China between January 8 and 12.
