In the latest sign that the coronavirus outbreak in mainland China is continuing to subside, officials said Friday that there were more new imported cases than cases that originated locally, officials said.
Of the 11 new diagnoses in the country on Friday, only four — all within the Hubei province where the outbreak began — came from within China, the National Health Commission said.
Overall, new cases were up slightly from the eight diagnoses the previous day.
The seven cases brought into China came from overseas travelers from the US, Italy and Saudi Arabia, the commission said, bringing the total number of cases that came from the outside up to 95.
More than 3,100 in China had died from COVID-19 by Friday.
