Only 2000 new cases per day…. here’s why

In a Thursday statement, the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission said a total of ten biosafety labs, “with the corresponding protection levels,” will be able to test nearly 2,000 samples every day when at full capacity. 

It is not clear when the labs will be up and running, but the report said the request for further assistance from “the relevant higher authorities” was made January 22.

It added that the city plans to transport 30,000 kits to the labs but has only issued 6,000 of them so far.
