China’s National Health Commission reported 67 new coronavirus cases on Thursday, all of which were imported, bringing the total number of cases that originated outside China to 541. The NHC also reported 58 new cases of suspected infection, which are all said to be imported as well.

It was the second day in a row that China reported zero locally transmitted cases, as the country begins to loosen lockdown restrictions on the coronavirus epicenter of Wuhan and Hubei province.

Of the 67 new cases, more than 25% were reported in Shanghai. See a list of new imported cases below:

  • Shanghai – 18

  • Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region – 12

  • Guangdong – 11

  • Fujian – 6

  • Beijing – 6

  • Shaanxi – 3

  • Tianjin – 2

  • Zhejiang – 2

  • Jiangsu – 2

  • Yunnan – 2

  • Shanxi – 1

  • Jilin – 1

  • Henan – 1

The NHC does not report the nationalities of newly confirmed COVID-19 patients in its public coronavirus updates on their official website.

China still accounts for the most cumulative coronavirus cases with over 81,000 as of Thursday, followed by Italy (74,386) and the US (68,572), according to Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.
