On the brink of a second wave of Covid19 attack, China has reported 46 new confirmed cases of Covid-19.

Out of this 46, 42 were attributed to travelers coming from overseas, National Health Commission (NHC) said. That brings mainland China’s total cases to 81,953, the NHC said.

None of the new cases were in Hubei province, where the coronavirus first emerged, the data showed.

There were three additional deaths in China — all of them in Hubei, taking the country’s total fatalities to 3,339, according to the NHC.

Separately, there were 34 new asymptomatic cases, where people tested positive for the virus but did not show any symptoms. That brings its number of asymptomatic cases currently under medical observation to 1,092, the NHC said.
