(Fighting against New Coronary Pneumonia) Guangzhou's new positive case is a Delta mutant strain and an overseas imported case belongs to the same transmission chain

  China News Service, Guangzhou, December 4 (Reporter Wang Hua) The Guangzhou Municipal Health Commission notified on the afternoon of the 4th that a worker in a centralized quarantine site for immigrants in Baiyun District, Guangzhou City tested positive for the new coronavirus nucleic acid.

According to the genetic sequencing results of the laboratory of the Guangzhou Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the new crown virus infected by the case belongs to the Delta mutant strain, which belongs to the same transmission chain as an imported case abroad.

  The case has been transported in a closed loop to the Eighth Hospital Affiliated to Guangzhou Medical University for isolation and treatment. He is currently in a stable condition.
