Global report: China records no new Covid-19 cases for first time as Hertz falls by wayside

China has recorded no new confirmed cases of coronavirus for the first time since the outbreak began, as Muslims around the world prepared for Eid celebrations under a range of restrictions.

Beijing’s National Health Commission said on Saturday there were only two suspected cases in mainland China: in Shanghai and in the north-eastern Jilian province. New asymptomatic cases fell to 28 from 35 a day earlier, it said.
