The original epicenter of the pandemic in China - Wuhan now has no coronavirus patients in its hospitals, a government official said on Sunday.
Wuhan is an industrial metropolis of 11 million and was the first to experience total lockdown and road bans as its hospitals became overwhelmed with patients, reports the New York Times.
Officials reported 46,452 total infections and 3,869 deaths from Wuhan in a tally published Sunday, though critics believe the actual figures to be higher.
The once virus affected Wuhan has been showing signs of recovery and each milestone has been celebrated.
Capsule hospitals that had been set up in Wuhan stadiums and gymnasiums were cleared in March, and the government allowed outbound traffic on April 7 after ending its lockdown.
On Friday, health officials said that only one patient had a severe case of the virus in Wuhan and as of Saturday the city still had 12 coronavirus cases, but no new infections.
