The novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak in Wuhan city, Hunan Province, China in Dec 2019 and has rapidly spread to the other parts of China. It is important to know what has happened in this epidemic. We analyzed the epidemic curves of 2019-nCoV cases, in mainland China from Jan 23, 2020 to Feb 11, 2020. We found cumulative confirmed cases in this period increased in a fast speed in China. We also observed important disparities in cure ratio(%) and mortality across high-income and low-income areas. Finally, we observed important disparities in cure ratio (%) and mortality across seven regions. Effective prevention and control measures should be taken and the sustained transmission required full attention of public health.
