BEIJING, March 16 (Xinhua) -- A leading group of China's novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) response on Monday demanded the orderly organization for withdrawing medical staff supporting virus-hit Hubei Province.
The group, led by Premier Li Keqiang, required ensuring high-level treatment of severe COVID-19 patients and helping Hubei resume normal medical services while withdrawing the supporting medical teams.
Timely and full payment of subsidies should be guaranteed for frontline personnel in epidemic prevention and control, including medical staff, community workers, police and volunteers, according to a meeting of the group.
By Sunday, 67,749 COVID-19 patients among the total 80,860 confirmed cases had been discharged after recovery, according to China's National Health Commission.
