A new case of Covid-19 infection was registered in the capital of Guangdong Province, but Macau has decided not to reimpose measures.

Macau.- The government has denied rumours that it will implement quarantine measures for arrivals from Guangzhou after a new Covid-19 case was registered.

Huadu district in Guangzhou city has reported a new local Covid-19 local case – a 40-year-old patient who worked at a designated quarantine hotel for international arrivals. He was confirmed to have been infected by imported cases from the hotel. The patient has been quarantined and received treatment in hospital.

The Guangzhou Municipal Health Commission conducted a mass virus test on over 150,000 residents over the weekend and no more cases were found.

However, as Macau had previously imposed quarantine to visitors from Qingdao after the news of Covid-19 infections there, there were concerns about the possibility of new restrictions for visitors from Guangzhou.

Officials said: “The case in Guangzhou had an obvious infection source, and it is confirmed that the patient is infected by imported cases. Therefore, we do not impose any special measures towards Guangzhou.”
