SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China recorded five new COVID-19 cases on Nov. 24, down from 22 a day earlier, the national health authority said on Wednesday.

All new cases were imported infections originating from overseas, the National Health Commission said in a statement.

The commission also reported six new asymptomatic cases, which China does not classify as confirmed cases, compared with eight a day earlier.

The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in mainland China now stands at 86,469, while the death toll is at 4,634.
