Beijing, Jul 3 (EFE) .- The National Health Commission of China announced today the detection of 23 new positives of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus this Friday, all of them diagnosed in travelers from outside the borders of mainland China.
These were detected in Sichuan (center, 6), Shanghai (east, 4), Hunan (center, 4), Yunnan (south, 4), Canton (south, 3), Fujian (southeast, 1) and Shaanxi (north, 1).
Thus, the Asian country accumulates 11 consecutive days without local infections appearing in the daily part of the Commission, after several weeks in which a small outbreak in the southeast province of Canton kept that statistic far from zero.
The health authorities also reported today the detection of 19 new asymptomatic infections (all “imported”), although Beijing does not include them as confirmed cases unless they manifest symptoms.
The total of this type of infections under observation is 463, of which 457 come from other territories.
Likewise, the National Health Commission detailed that, until last local midnight (16:00 GMT on Friday), 28 patients were discharged after successfully overcoming the covid.
Thus, the total number of active infected in mainland China stood at 431, 8 of which are serious.
According to the institution’s accounts, 91,833 people have been infected in the country since the beginning of the pandemic, among whom 86,766 have managed to heal and 4,636 died.
To date, 1,061,312 close contacts with infected people have been followed up, of which 12,098 remain under observation. EFE
