BEIJING (Reuters) – China reported 11 new mainland COVID-19 cases on April 26, matching the tally from a day earlier, the country’s national health authority said on Tuesday.

The National Health Commission, in a statement, said all of the new cases were imported infections originating from overseas. The number of new asymptomatic cases, which China does not classify as confirmed cases, fell to 14 from 18 cases a day earlier.
