(Reuters) – China reported nine new COVID-19 cases on March 22, up from seven cases a day earlier, the country’s national health authority said on Tuesday.

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

Total confirmed COVID-19 cases in Mainland China now stand at 90,106. The death toll remains unchanged at 4,636.
