GUANGZHOU, April 10 (Xinhua) -- 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.

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