China continues to report a drop in daily cases and a lower death toll from the novel coronavirus, with the latest tallies for both categories in single digits.
Seven more people died in mainland China yesterday, according to the country’s National Health Commission (NHC).
There were eight new confirmed cases, five of which were in Wuhan, the epicenter of the pandemic.
The drop in new daily cases is especially striking given that just a month or two ago, the country was reporting thousands of new cases per day.
Total cases: China has reported 80,813 cases and 3,176 deaths since the outbreak began last December.
Total recoveries: 64,111 patients have recovered and been discharged from hospital, according to the NHC.
