A doctor who treated patients with Covid-19 died on Tuesday, 2, in Wuhan, China, after contracting the disease. According to state media, Hu Weifeng passed away after almost four months of treatment.

Hu is the first confirmed coronavirus victim in China in weeks. The urologist was part of the team of Li Wenliang, the doctor who tried to alert the public to the epidemic in 2019 and was silenced by authorities. Li also died after contracting Covid-19.

At least six doctors at Wuhan Central Hospital died. Hu's case has gained national prominence in recent weeks after local media released images of the doctor with darkened skin, a symptom caused by liver damage.

The National Health Commission of China said on Tuesday that the country detected five new cases of contagion with the coronavirus on Monday 1, which marks a reduction from the sixteen reported on Sunday, the day with the highest number since mid-May.

The five cases registered until midnight local (1 pm Monday in Brasília) refer, according to the authorities, to travelers from abroad. They took place in Sichuan (2), Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shaanxi.

In addition, the commission said that eight patients were discharged from treatment for coronavirus, and that the number of people currently infected in China is 73, of which three are in serious condition.

The total number of deaths in the country is 4,638, and the number of cases of contagion has reached 84,160 since the beginning of the pandemic, according to Johns Hopkins University. The vast majority of infected people – 79,398 – are cured.
