78 new confirmed cases of coronavirus in China

The health authorities in China recorded 78 new confirmed cases of the Corona virus, up from 64 the day before.

The National Health Committee of China said, in a statement, that 59 of the new infections were local, explaining that “the number of new infections that do not show symptoms reached 24, up from 23 a day ago.”

The Chinese government had imposed a general closure on the city of Lanzhou in the northwest of the country, to stop the significant rise in the number of coronavirus infections, and had ordered residents not to leave their homes except for emergencies.

China has largely contained the virus, and the sporadic cases that appear locally are very small compared to the cases recorded in other countries.
