China has reported no new Covid-19 deaths for the first time since January. Even though there are struggles going on with ongoing outbreaks including Wuhan, this is some good news that no more deaths have been reported in China.
The National Health Commission reported 32 new cases across China on Tuesday. All of these cases were arrivals from another country. Furthermore, there were 30 new asymptomatic cases reported.
But for the first time since the commission has begun publishing its figures no new deaths have been reported in China.
This has been possible as mainland China and Hong Kong have enhanced restrictions on the foreign arrivals due to the increasing number of imported and asymptomatic cases.
It is pertinent to mention here that over 1.3 million people globally have been diagnosed with Covid-19 and there have been 74,744 deaths. This is as per the Johns Hopkins tracker.
In the month of March, authorities eased restrictions on the residents of Wuhan which was going on for months amid the coronavirus pandemic.
As the coronavirus infection rate has dropped, authorities have designated 7000 residential compounds in Wuhan as free of the pandemic.
It is expected that on Wednesday the travel restrictions will be lifted and people will be allowed to travel with green health codes. However on Monday as per the state news agency Xinhua the designations have been revoked for 45 compounds due to the emergence of asymptomatic cases.
