The other three new cases were domestically transmitted in Heilongjiang Province, the National Health Commission said in a daily report.

-- Xiaotangshan Hospital, which was previously used to quarantine SARS patients in Beijing, cleared all COVID-19 cases Tuesday and is scheduled to cease operation Wednesday.

-- Shanghai reported two imported COVID-19 cases and zero increase in locally transmitted COVID-19 case on Monday, the municipal health commission said Tuesday.
