The Chinese city of Wuhan, where the global coronavirus pandemic began, now has no remaining cases in its hospitals, a health official has told reporters.

“The latest news is that by April 26, the number of new coronavirus patients in Wuhan was at zero, thanks to the joint efforts of Wuhan and medical staff from around the country,” National Health Commission spokesman Mi Feng said at a briefing on Sunday.

The city had reported 46,452 cases, 56 per cent of the national total. It saw 3869 fatalities, or 84 per cent of China’s total.

But Singapore registered 931 new coronavirus infections overnight, up from 618 the day before, to take its total number of cases to 13,624.

The vast majority of the new cases are migrant workers living in dormitories, the health ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

Singapore now has one of the highest infection rates in Asia, according to official figures, due to outbreaks in cramped dormitories housing over 300,000 mainly South Asian workers.
