China has detected an additional 49 new cases of covid-19 coronavirus infection in the last 24 hours, with 33 being local contagions in western Xinjiang and in the northeastern province of Liaoning, the National Health Commission said today.

The figures for the last 24 hours given represent an increase of four cases compared to Friday, but well below those recorded in the previous three days, always above 100 daily contagions.

Among the 33 local infections, 30 were detected in Xinjiang and three in Liaoning. Two of the imported cases were identified in Guangzhou, in Guangdong province, neighboring Macau.

The covid-19 pandemic has already claimed more than 680 deaths and infected more than 17,6 million people in 196 countries and territories, according to a report by the France-Presse news agency (AFP).

The disease is transmitted by a new coronavirus detected in late December in Wuhan, a city in central China.

After Europe succeeded China as the center of the pandemic in February, the American continent is now the one with the most confirmed cases and the most deaths.
