Epidemiological investigation and traceability found all cases are currently in the same transmission chain. Genome sequencing is 100% homologous to imported cases in other provinces. The case with early onset was engaged in customer service in a company, and often came into contact with imported goods. 

According to the current on-site epidemiological investigation and laboratory testing, experts have concluded that exposure to contaminated imported items cannot be ruled out to have cause this wave of cases.

From January 16 to 18, Zhuhai will conduct citywide nucleic acid testing from 8:00 to 19:00 every day. Those who don’t take nucleic acid tests in the given time will be given a "yellow code".

The city's tourist attractions have been suspended since January 16. Xiangzhou District has suspended dine-in services of the restaurants.
