Guangzhou Conducts Nucleic Acid Detection on Personnel from...

Since April 5, the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou has started conducting nucleic acid detection on all persons who entered the city from high-risk countries, local authorities said Friday.

As of Thursday, Guangzhou had performed nucleic acid tests on about 4,355 personnel from high-risk countries and put them under health management, the Guangdong provincial health commission told a press briefing.

The health management refers to isolation for medical observation.

The move has detected a number of confirmed cases of COVID-19, said Tang Xiaoping, director of the provincial health commission.

Earlier, Guangzhou had carried out a comprehensive screening on people who entered the city from overseas since March 8 but have not been included in the home or centralized isolation medical observation. As a result, 21,742 inbound personnel have been put under health management and undergone nucleic acid tests.

Since March 15, Guangzhou had reported a total of 114 imported cases as of Thursday.
