China reported its ninth consecutive day with no new locally transmitted COVID-19 cases, as a major university in the city of Wuhan opened for face-to-face classes on Tuesday for the first time in eight months.
The daily update from national health officials, which provided data for Monday, showed the recent streak without any new locally transmitted cases stretched into another day.
There were 14 new imported cases, involving travellers returning from overseas, down from 16 the previous day. There were also 16 new asymptomatic cases – patients who are infected with the coronavirus but not exhibiting any symptoms – compared with 27 a day earlier.
In the central city where the virus was first detected, Wuhan University opened its doors to more than 9,100 students on Monday.
