No coronavirus deaths was reported in China on Tuesday, the first time since it started publishing daily figures in January following the emergence of the deadly virus in Wuhan city in December last year.
The National Health Commission (NHC) of the country said it had 32 confirmed cases, down from 39 on Monday, BBC reported.
All of the confirmed cases were imported, it added.
Total number of coronavirus cases in China as of Tuesday was 82,697, while the death toll stood at 3,335.
Although other countries like the US and Italy have surpassed China in terms of both cases and deaths, the Asian giant was concerned that a second wave of infections could be brought in by foreign arrivals.
According to BBC, it has already shut its border to foreigners including those with visas or residence permits.
International flights have been reduced with both Chinese and foreign airlines only allowed to operate one international flight a week.
Flights must not be more than 75 per cent full, according to the government.
On Wednesday, Wuhan, where the pandemic originated in December 2019, is set to allow people to leave the city for the first time since the lockdown began on January 23.
China began reporting asymptomatic cases at the beginning of April. More than 1,033 asymptomatic patients are under medical observation.
