China Announced just One Confirmed Coronavirus Case

BEIJING — China has announced just one confirmed coronavirus case, one brought from outside the country, and no new deaths, as authorities in the hardest-hit province of Hubei move closer to sounding a final all-clear.

Across the country, 69 people remain in treatment for COVID-19 and another 329 were under isolation and observation for being suspected cases or for having tested positive for the virus without showing symptoms.

China has reported a total of 4,634 deaths among 82,022 cases since the virus was first detected in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, late last year.

The risk level in a parts of Hubei has been reduced to “low” and the provincial legislature plans to meet later this month to review the overall situation.
