China’s National Health Commission reported 14 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Saturday, according to ABC News. This is the largest number since April 28.

Among the 14 was the first case confirmed in Wuhan in over a month. Wuhan is where the outbreak was first detected late last year.

11 cases were detected in Shulan city in northeastern Jilin province. All of those cases stemmed from family or people who came into contact with the family of a woman who tested positive for COVID-19.

Jilin officials on Sunday raised the Shulan city risk level to high from medium. China officially designated all areas of the country as low-risk last Thursday, according to ABC News.
