Mainland China reported seven new Covid-19 cases on September 23, down from 10 reported a day earlier, the country's national health authority said on Thursday.

The National Health Commission said in a statement that all new cases were imported infections involving travellers from overseas. The number of new asymptomatic cases rose to 20 from 18 a day earlier, though these symptomless patients are not considered confirmed Covid-19 infections in China.

The total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases to date in mainland China now stands at 85,314, while the death toll remained unchanged at 4,634. (Reuters)
