  • China slashes international flights in effort to curb coronavirus risk

Mainland China reported a second consecutive day of no new local coronavirus infections as the epicenter of the epidemic Hubei province opened its borders, but imported cases rose as Beijing ramped up controls to prevent a resurgence of infections.

The National Health Commission received reports of 67 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on the Chinese mainland on Wednesday, all of which were imported.

By the end of Wednesday, a total of 541 imported cases have been reported, Mi said.

From January to Wednesday, 3,169 people died in Hubei and Wuhan. The virus was first reported in Wuhan in December past year.
