Hospital sends 14 COVID-19 patients home
Fourteen patients infected with COVID-19 were released from hospital on Tuesday after their recovery, the Shanghai Health Commission said.
They were six foreigners and eight Chinese, aged between 5 and 60.
Five of the foreign patients were from the same family of four children, according to the commission.
They had been treated in a family ward to ease anxiety of the children and that was believed to have helped in their recovery, the commission said.
Follow-up visits will be made to check on their health, officials said.
There has been an increase in the number of middle-aged or senior patients among imported cases since winter, the commission added.
