Mainland China has experienced a rise in new Coronavirus infections in five days. The country announced that it will start releasing information on coronavirus patients who show no symptoms ordering them into quarantine for 14 days.
Local cases are deminishing but new cases have been recorded among travellers returning home. It has become a concern that people without symptoms could be spreading the virus without knowing.
The National Health Commission said they will include such cases in their report and people who have been in close contact to the patients will face 14 days medical observation.
By Monday asymptomatic patients under observation were 1,541, with 205 of the cases having come from overseas.
New infections were 48 from the previous day’s 31, all of the new infections are imported cases.
Due to the fear of a second wave of infection, China will delay its college exam by a month until July 7 and 8. The annual two-day “gaokao” test drew more than 10 million candidates last year.
