Chinese city Wuhan has discharged all coronavirus patients and recorded ‘zero’ new infections

Wuhan, the Chinese city where the Covid-19 pandemic began, has discharged all of its patients after recording zero new cases yesterday.

CHINA as a whole reported just three new cases and no new deaths, according to the National Health Commission.

Spokesman Mi Feng, attributed this to “the joint efforts of Wuhan and medical staff from around the country.”

Two of the three new cases on Sunday were reportedly imported infections.

The third was a locally transmitted case in the northeastern border province of Heilongjiang, believed to be the result of Chinese nationals returning home from Russia.

Restaurants are also required to provide serving utensils and to encourage separate portions, over the traditional shared family-style meals, when possible.

The regulations come into force on June 1.
