Update (1850ET): China’s NHC just released another update. Adding more than 600 to the total confirmed cases, China is now admitting to 7,771 cases across the country. The death toll has climbed to 170 (which includes one death outside China) and 170 patients have been cured – the same number as the dead. Some 31 cases were labeled “severe” and nearly 90,000 people have been “tracked” (interrogated about contacts and symptoms). Nearly 82,000 are under observation (aka quarantine).
The number of suspected cases climbed from just over 8,000 to just north of 12,000.
Here’s a breakdown of all the revisions…
- Confirmed cases +29% (from 5974 to 7711)
- Suspected cases +52% (from: 8019 to 12167)
- Severe cases +10% (from 1239 to 1370)
- Death toll +29% (from 232 to 170

…and here’s a copy of the announcement from China’s National Health Office, translated into English via Google:
And the updated chart…At 04:00 on January 29, 31 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) and the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps reported 1737 new confirmed cases (the first confirmed case in Tibet), 131 new severe cases, and 38 new deaths. (37 cases in Hubei and 1 in Sichuan), 21 new cases were cured and discharged, and 4148 suspected cases were added.
As of 24:00 on January 29, the National Health and Health Commission has received a cumulative report of 7711 confirmed cases, 31 cases of severe cases, 170 death cases, and a total of 170 patients who have been cured and discharged. There were 124 cases with 12,167 suspected cases.
At present, 88,693 close contacts have been tracked. Of the 2,364 people who were released from medical observation on the same day, a total of 81,947 people are receiving medical observation.
A total of 25 confirmed cases were reported in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan: 10 in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, 7 in the Macao Special Administrative Region, and 8 in Taiwan.
In other news, as economists worry about the blowback to China’s already slowing economy, Peter Navarro said late Wednesday that the Trump administration will keep its tariffs in place no matter what happens with the outbreak.
That’s probably why there have been so many rumors about the fraught relationship between Trump and Xi, and reports that Trump never actually spoke with the Chinese leader after claiming that they had discussed the outbreak.
Once again, we’d like to point out that we’re ahead of this supposedly “alarmist” and “fearmongering” model (h/t @abuforlife1):
