China reported one new coronavirus case and four new asymptomatic coronavirus cases in the mainland on June 2, the country’s health commission said.
The National Health Commission said the one confirmed case was imported involving a traveller from overseas. Mainland China had five confirmed cases, all of which were imported, and 10 asymptomatic cases for June 1.
China does not count asymptomatic patients, those who are infected with the coronavirus but not exhibiting symptoms, as confirmed cases.
Total number of infections to date in the mainland stands at 83,021. The death toll remained unchanged at 4,634.
Mexico’s deputy health minister said on Tuesday that the novel coronavirus had reached its maximum intensity in the country after the ministry reported a record increase in daily cases.
The ministry said on Tuesday there were an additional 3,891 cases of the coronavirus and 470 more deaths.
That brought the total number of known cases to 97,326, with 10,637 deaths. Health authorities have said the real number of cases is higher.
“The coronavirus epidemic is at its maximum level of intensity,” Hugo Lopez-Gatell, who has spearheaded the country’s response to the outbreak, said during a regular news conference.
Lopez-Gatell added that the decline in cases was usually slower than the ascent.
