·1 min read

SHANGHAI, May 8 (Reuters) - China reported seven new mainland COVID-19 cases on May 7, down from 13 cases a day earlier, the country's national health authority said on Saturday.

The National Health Commission said in a statement that all the new cases were imported infections originating from overseas. The number of new asymptomatic cases, which China does not classify as confirmed cases, dropped to eight from 17 a day earlier.

The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in mainland China now stands at 90,746, while the death toll remained unchanged at 4,636. (Reporting by Winni Zhou and Andrew Galbraith; Editing by Leslie Adler)
