The coronavirus outbreak is still severe and complicated and the medical resources for the Hubei province's, where the virus originated, local counties are relatively weak, Vice Governor Xiao Juhua told reporters on Sunday during a press briefing, per Reuters.

Meanwhile, Wang Wei, director of Hubei's science and technology department, noted that the accuracy of the test kits to confirm virus infections have improved and the time to confirm has halved to "no more than two hours."
