China on Thursday, 19 March, said no new domestic cases of the coronavirus were reported for the first time in the country, three months after the deadly virus broke out in Wuhan.

China's National Health Commission (NHC), in its daily report on Thursday, said no new domestically transmitted cases of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) were reported on the Chinese mainland on Wednesday.

It, however, said 34 new confirmed COVID-19 cases were reported but they were all from those arriving from abroad.

Wuhan, which bore the brunt of the virus since it broke out in December last year, reported zero cases on Wednesday, marking a notable first in the city's months-long battle with the deadly virus, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

Of the 34 newly imported cases, 21 were reported in Beijing, nine in the Guangdong Province, two in Shanghai, one in the Heilongjiang Province and one in the Zhejiang Province, it said.
