China reported increasing number of asymptomatic cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) sparking concerns of second wave of infection.

National Health Commission registered 78 new asymptomatic COVID-19 cases on Sunday, higher than the reported 47 on Saturday.

Hubei province, where the virus originated, accounts for almost half of the new asymptomatic cases, Reuters reported.

There are 705 individuals with asymptomatic cases who are under treatment in mainland China.

This poses concern to the Hubei’s capital Wuhan, which prepares to waive the travel restriction to residents of the city on April after 3 months of lockdown.

Wuhan has recalled the “epidemic-free” status of 45 residential compounds due to the emergence of asymptomatic cases and for other unspecified reasons, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.

The “Epidemic-free” certificate status allows people living in a compound in Wuhan to leave their homes for two hours at a time.

The overall confirmed cases on the mainland China had reached 81,708 by Sunday, including 1,299 patients who were still being treated, 77,078 patients who had been discharged after recovery and 3,331 people who died of the disease.
