Shanghai, Sep 17, 2020, SPA -- Mainland China reported 32 new COVID-19 cases on Sept. 17, up sharply from 9 cases reported a day earlier, Reuters quoted the Chinese national health authority as saying today.
The National Health Commission said in a statement that all new cases were imported infections involving travellers from overseas. It also reported 20 new asymptomatic cases, also up for 14 a day earlier, though China does not classify these symptomless patients as confirmed COVID-19 cases.
