China reports no new coronavirus deaths for first time

China today reported no new deaths from coronavirus for the first time since the crisis began.

The country’s National Health Commission reported 32 new cases in its latest daily update, but claimed there were no new fatalities.
Authorities said all the new patients were people returning to China from abroad, as the country braces for a second wave of imported cases.

In total, officials in mainland China have declared 81,740 cases and 3,331 deaths since the outbreak began in Hubei province late last year.
