Ten people with infection caused by the novel coronavirus in Shanghai have been cured and were discharged from the hospital on Thursday, a city official said.

So far, 25 people with confirmed cases in the city have been discharged from the hospital, about one-tenth of the overall confirmed cases, said Zheng Jin, the spokesman for the Shanghai Municipal Health Commission at the daily news conference regarding the novel coronavirus outbreak.

According to Zheng, 16 confirmed cases in critical and severe condition have been treated in the designated Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center. Experts and skilled medical staff from all relevant disciplines, especially experts in infection, critical illness, respiration, and artificial lung, in the city's top hospitals, have been transferred to the center.

Meanwhile, expert consultation groups have been set up to discuss and provide treatment suggestions to patients in critical condition, Zheng said.

The condition of several critical cases has improved during treatment, according to Zheng.
