SHANGHAI/BEIJING (Reuters) - China will gradually withdraw medical staff from Hubei province, the origin of the outbreak and the main site of its spread, state broadcaster CCTV reported on Monday, citing a work group meeting chaired by Chinese premier Li Keqiang.

Imported coronavirus cases in China, however, bring uncertainties to the end of the outbreak, CCTV reported, citing the meeting.
