China has reported no new Covid-19-related deaths for the first time since health authorities began putting out daily figures, APA reports citing Evening Standard.

The Chinese National Health Commission said there were 32 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday, down from 39 on Monday, as well as 12 suspected cases. All arrived from overseas, the commission said.

The spread of the virus has been slowing for weeks in China, after the Government introduced a strict lockdown in Wuhan, the city where the outbreak began.

But the country has warned of a second wave of coronavirus, which it said is brought in by international visitors.
