WUHAN: Health officials in China have published the first details of more than 70,000 cases of Covid-19, in the biggest study since the outbreak began, the BBC reports.

Data from the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CCDC) found that more than 80% of the cases have been mild with the sick and elderly most at risk.

The research also points to the high risk for medical staff.
