China: First 24 hours with no deaths due to Coronavirus


In China, no new deaths have been recorded in the last 24 hours. This is the first instance since January.

However, 32 infections have been confirmed, all of them triggered from abroad, and 30 have been infected without symptoms, according to the Chinese National Health Commission.

So far, 1033 asymptomatic infections have been reported in China. Data on infected people who do not have COVID-19 symptoms but can tolerate the infection were released by China last week.

A large proportion of symptom-free infections were recorded in Wuhan, where the new virus first appeared at the end of last year. The city is concerned that it is expected to end the quarantine imposed at the end of January.

In China, a total of 81,740 cases of infection have been confirmed so far, with 3,331 dead.
