To celebrate the news, buildings in the city were lit up with slogans for the medical staff who were on the frontlines in the battle against coronavirus and worked round the clock since the breakout. Pictures of the illuminated buildings went viral on social media after they were tweeted by Chinese press agency China Xinhua News.

On Thursday, China’s national health commission confirmed that while there were 34 new cases, they were all from those arriving from abroad, The Guardian reported.

While the outbreak began in Hubei’s Wuhan city last year, the virus has now spread across the world, resulting in many countries shutting their borders. However, with no new local cases being reported, China has brought hope amid the ongoing panic that has gripped nations.
