China’s National Health Commission has reported no new coronavirus deaths for the first time since it started publishing figures on the virus late last year.
The milestone comes as the country prepares to lift all travel restrictions on Wuhan, the city where the virus first emerged at a seafood market late last year.
Latest data shows 32 new cases of coronavirus nationwide, all of them imported.
There were also 30 new asymptomatic infections bringing the national total to 1,033. About a quarter of those were also imported from overseas, the commission said.
