In view of the whole-gene sequencing of the novel coronavirus, it has been preliminarily determined that the confirmed case of these infected patients is highly homologous to the locally cluster epidemic virus in Shunyi District, and is more likely to be the same transmission chain. Moreover, there was no significant correlation with the concentrated outbreaks in Shijiazhuang and Xingtai of Hebei Province.

  • The possibility of the virus was imported by the airport is high, and attending a wedding banquet and other gathering activities become the high frequency words of patients activity track;


  • The floating population is large, and the villagers' awareness of epidemic prevention is poor.

On January 11, 2021, according to Shenyang CDC, through epidemiological investigation and big data analysis, combined with whole-genome sequencing analysis, the source of the epidemic in Shenyang was that the entry personnel attacked by the COVID-19 after the 14-day quarantine.
