Most new locally-transmitted COVID-19 cases related to clustered infections: Chinese official
Most of the new locally-transmitted COVID-19 cases reported on Thursday are related to the clustered infections that have been published before, said a Chinese health official Friday.
The Chinese mainland has reported 52 new locally-transmitted confirmed cases in the past week, the largest number in nearly a month, said Mi Feng, an official with the National Health Commission at a press conference in Beijing.
The commission said Friday that it received reports of 26 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on the mainland Thursday, of which 15 were imported and 11 were domestically transmitted.
Mi stressed to maintain outbreak control on a regular basis and prevent a possible resurgence and spread of the epidemic at home.
