On Thursday, a total of 1,081 people were discharged from hospital, and 26,9095 close contacts were discharged from medical observation, he added.

Mi also introduced the overall data relevant to the epidemic so far.

"As of 24:00 on Thursday, there were 55,748 confirmed cases in the provincial-level regions and the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, including 10,204 severe cases. A total of 6,723 people had been discharged from hospital after recovery, with 269 cuts from Hubei after examination; 1,380 people had died of the disease, with 108 cuts from Hubei due to double-counting," said Mi.

The total confirmed cases had reached 63,851, with 1,043 cuts from Hubei after examination; 10,109 people have been suspected of being infected with the virus. A total of 493,067 close contacts had been traced, with 177,984 still under medical observation, according to Mi.

"[By the end of Thursday], 81 confirmed cases had been reported in China's Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, of which 53 in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR), 10 in the Macao SAR and 18 in Taiwan," said Mi.

Meanwhile, the number of new confirmed cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) recorded outside the epicenter of Hubei Province has been dropping for 10 consecutive days from 890 on Feb. 3 to 267 on Thursday, which reflects that the previous prevention and controlling measures are effective, Mi said at the press briefing.
