Of the new infections, 65 cases were transmitted locally, according to a statement by the National Health Commission, compared to 50 a day earlier.
More than half of the new local cases were found in Liaoning and Henan provinces.
China reported 46 new asymptomatic patients, which it classifies separately from confirmed cases, compared to 35 a day earlier.
There were no new deaths, leaving the death toll unchanged at 4,636.
Infections have been steadily increasing in recent days, with authorities reporting 36 new cases on November 5 and 28 cases a day earlier. China had a total of 97,823 confirmed coronavirus cases on November 7.
More than 800 locally transmitted infections with confirmed symptoms have been reported in 19 provinces at provincial level since mid-October, leading to a flurry of curbs on tourism and leisure businesses under Beijing’s zero tolerance policy.
