Wuhan, the epicentre of the novel coronavirus outbreak in China, reported on Monday its first cluster of infections since a lockdown on the city was lifted a month ago, stoking concerns of a wider resurgence of the disease.

Wuhan reported five new confirmed cases, all from the same residential compound. One was the wife of an 89-year-old patient reported a day earlier in the first confirmed case in the central city in more than a month.

“At present, the task of epidemic prevention and control in the city is still very heavy,” the Wuhan health authority said in a statement.

“We must resolutely contain the risk of a rebound.”
