No new cases of coronavirus have been reported in Beijing for the first time since the detection of a new cluster early last month.

Health authorities said only one asymptomatic case was reported, but China doesn't add those to the confirmed cases tally.

The government has so far tested more than 11 million people for COVID-19 since June 11.

Movement restrictions across the city have been eased in recent days, with people living in 'low-risk' areas now allowed to travel freely again.

A total of 335 people have been infected since a cluster emerged at Beijing's Xinfadi wholesale market in early June.
