SHANGHAI — China on Tuesday reported 19 new coronavirus cases in the mainland for June 29, up from 12 a day earlier, the health authority said. There were no new deaths. 

Of the new infections, seven were in Beijing, the National Health Commission said in a statement. 

The capital city, which is battling a fresh outbreak, had also reported seven new infections for June 28. 

Mainland China reported four new asymptomatic patients, who tested positive for COVID-19 but showed no clinical symptoms such as a fever, down from six a day earlier. 

As of June 29, mainland China had a total of 83,531 confirmed coronavirus cases, while the death toll stands at 4,634.
