China has seen a dramatic drop in the number of new coronavirus cases being recorded, with officials saying they have passed “the peak”.

Chinese authorities have credited the dramatic drop in new cases to the strict measures they have taken to contain the spread of the virus, including placing Hubei under near total lockdown.

“The increase of new cases is falling,” Zhong Nanshan, the Chinese government’s senior medical adviser, said at a news conference on Thursday.

He claimed that as long as countries take the outbreak seriously and are prepared to take firm measures, it could be over worldwide in a matter of months.

“My advice is calling for all countries to follow WHO instructions and intervene on a national scale,” he said.

“If all countries could get mobilised, it could be over by June.”
