China reports first day of zero coronavirus related deaths

There have been no new confirmed coronavirus cases logged in China in the last 24 hours for the first time since the pandemic began, according to reports.

There has also been a drop of asymptomatic cases in the country, from 35 to 28, said the Chinese National Health Commission, which on Saturday noted just two suspected COVID-19 cases, one in Shanghai and in the northeast province of Jilian.

Earlier this month a new batch of infections emerged in Wuhan, where the pandemic first started in December, causing authorities to test the entire population of 11 million.

China, which has faced criticism for concealing information about the virus and helping its spread around the globe, has tallied more than 4,600 coronavirus deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
