Chinese Wikipedia lists 57 units in service, with 11 commissioned thus far in 2020. The origin of the discrepancy between Chinese Wikipedia's 11 units and the "9 units so far in 2020" headlines is unclear, though several units are listed simply as having been commissioned in "2020", i.e. no specific date. Possibly the status of these units is disputed or no commissioning ceremony was observed/reported?

(the two hulls with disputed commissioning status, as Lethe mentioned, are Enshi 627 and Guang’an 622 or Dingzhou 603)
