NANJING, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- East China's Jiangsu Province reported 40 new locally transmitted confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, the provincial health commission said Monday.

The province also registered two locally transmitted asymptomatic cases and three imported confirmed cases on Sunday.

All the cases have been sent to designated hospitals for treatment.
