COVID-19: China reports new infections; Turkey, Bolivia confirm 1st casesTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_Chinese health officials on Wednesday reported 24 new cases of COVID-19 infection and 22 deaths in mainland China over the previous 24 hours.

China’s National Health Commission said that of the new infections, 10 were imported cases, bringing the overall cases from abroad to 79.

Those figures bring China’s totals to 80,778 infections and 3,158 deaths since the outbreak emerged in Wuhan, the provincial capital of Hubei, in December last year.

Officials reported just 13 new infections in Wuhan — a city of 11 million people — on Tuesday.

Wuhan and several other cities had been under lockdown to prevent the spread of the virus. Amid the decreases in tallies over the past days, a few cities in Hubei started to loosen restrictions on the movement of people and goods. But, at least one reversed that decision as new increases emerged on Tuesday.
