BEIJING, July 26 (Reuters) - China reported 76 new COVID-19 cases on July 25, up from 32 cases a day earlier, the country's national health authority said on Monday.
Local infections accounted for 40 of the new cases, compared with only five a day earlier, the National Health Commission said in a statement. Thirty-nine of the local cases were reported in the eastern province of Jiangsu, and one in the northeastern province of Liaoning, it said.
The number of new asymptomatic cases - which China does not classify as confirmed cases - rose to 24 from 17 cases a day earlier.
Total confirmed COVID-19 cases in mainland China stand at 92,605, and the death toll remains at 4,636.
