    Background: The novel coronavirus disease MESHD 2019(COVID-19) outbreak and has caused has caused 82,830 confirmed cases TRANS and 4,633 deaths in China by 26 April 2020. We analyzed data on 69 infections in Wuxi to describe the epidemiologic characteristics and evaluate the control measures.Methods: The demographic characteristics, exposure history, and illness timelines of COVID-19 cases in Wuxi were collected.Results: Among the 69 positive infections with COVID-19, mild and normal types accounted for 75.36% (52/69), adolescents and children TRANS are mainly mild and asymptomatic TRANS. The basic reproductive number TRANS was estimated to be 1.12 (95% CI, 0.71 to 1.69). The mean incubation period TRANS was estimated to be 4.77 days (95% CI, 3.61 to 5.94), with a mean serial interval TRANS of 6.31 days (95%CI, 5.12 to 7.50). We also found that age TRANS (RR=1.57, 95%CI: 1.11-2.21) and fever HP fever MESHD (RR=4.09, 95%CI: 1.10-15.19) were risk factors for COVID-19 disease severity.Conclusions: The incidence of COVID-19 in Wuxi has turned into a lower level, suggesting that the early prevention and control measures have achieved effectiveness. The community transmission TRANS can be effectively prevented through isolation and virus detection of all the people who were exposed together and close contact TRANS with the infected people. Aging and fever HP fever MESHD are risk factors for clinical outcome, which might be useful for preventing severe transition.
