Chinese authorities reported no new confirmed Coronavirus cases at the end of yesterday, making it the first time since they began reporting data on the number of infections since January. This is the first time the country saw no daily rise in the number of COVID-19 patients.

While there have been no new positive confirmed cases, the National Health Commission, has reported two suspected cases – an imported case in Shanghai, and a locally transmitted one in Jilin province. The number of total cases in the country is 82,791 with 4,634 people dead.

China has been successful in flattening the curve of locally transmitted cases since March. Early in April, Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus outbreak, came out of intensive lockdown measures.

The report came a day after the Chinese parliament, meeting after a two-month delay, celebrated “major achievements” in the fight against the infectious disease.
