on: February 13, 2020, 07:46

Some 242 deaths from the new coronavirus were recorded in the Chinese province of Hubei on Wednesday the deadliest day of the outbreak.
There was also a huge increase in the number of cases, with 14,840 people diagnosed with the virus Hubei has started using a broader definition to diagnose
people - which accounts for most of the rise in casesUntil Wednesday's increases, the number of people diagnosed in Hubei-where the outbreak emerged-was
stabilising But the new cases and deaths in the province have pushed the national death toll above 1,350 with almost 60,000 infections in total
Meanwhile, the Communist Party secretary in Hubei, Jiang Chaoliang, has been replaced by the Shanghai party chief, Ying Yong, according to state media
The party chief of the capital city Wuhan has also been relieved of his dutiesIt is the first major change of Hubei party officials since the outbreak began
Earlier this week, a number of health officials were "removed" from their jobsThe province-which accounts for more than 80% of overall Chinese
infections-now includes "clinically diagnosed cases" in the number of confirmed cases
This means it includes those showing symptoms and having a CT scan showing an infected lung, rather than relying only on the standard nucleic acid tests
Of the 242 new deaths in Wuhan, 135 are such "clinically diagnosed" casesThat means even without the new definition, the number of deaths in Hubei on Wednesday was 107 - a new high for the province.
The province's 14,840 new infections include 13,332 clinically diagnosed casesOverall the province now has 48,206 confirmed infections
