At the close, the Shanghai Composite index was up 0.44% at 3,377.73. The blue-chip CSI300 index was up 0.31%.

Japanese stocks fell for a 3rd consecutive session Friday as a rise in new domestic coronavirus cases to record highs drove concerns that officials will place new restrictions on business activity.

The Nikkei 225 index ended down 0.42% to 25,527.37. The broader Topix erased losses to end 0.06% higher at 1,727.39.
