·1 min read

SHANGHAI, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Mainland China reported 16 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Oct. 26, down from 20 a day earlier, the country's health authorities said on Tuesday.

The number of new asymptomatic cases also fell to 50, from 161 reported a day earlier amid a fresh wave of symptomless infections being reported in the northwestern Xinjiang region.

Xinjiang's authorities said separately that 26 new asymptomatic cases were reported on Oct. 26, down from 137 a day earlier.

China does not classify asymptomatic infections as confirmed COVID-19 cases.

The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in mainland China now stands at 85,826, while the death toll remained unchanged at 4,634. (Reporting by Jing Wang and Emily Chow; writing by Se Young Lee; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
