At a press briefing of the State Council inter-agency task force yesterday, NHC spokesperson Mi Feng said that 21 suspected cases were newly reported nationwide on 17 March, all of which were imported. Since the outbreak, it is the first time that no new indigenous suspected cases were reported on the Chinese mainland. Outside Wuhan, no new indigenous cases were identified in Hubei for 13 days running. Medical teams seconded to Hubei are making return trips in batches in an orderly fashion. According to the World Health Organization, 159 countries and territories have reported cases of COVID-19. While working to curb the importation of cases, China will continue to actively engage in international cooperation to jointly combat the pandemic.
