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.

  • Shanxi – 1

  • Jilin – 1
