China Says Qingdao Outbreak Linked to Hospital”

China's National Health Commission (NHC) said on Friday that 240 people who came from overseas were being treated, and 376 asymptomatic cases, including 375 from outside the mainland, were under medical observation. China reported its biggest scare in months this past week when more than a dozen were infected after the country went almost two months without a locally transmitted domestic case.

Medical staff wait to collect swab samples from residents for COVID-19 test in Qingdao, east China's Shandong Province, Oct. 14, 2020. No more positive cases were found aside from the 13 cases confirmed earlier this week.

The cause of an outbreak of the novel coronavirus at a hospital in the Chinese coastal city of Qingdao was traced to two infected dock workers, authorities said on Friday. There was no community transmission, as such.

The Qingdao cluster has created nationwide concern as thousands visited the tourist city during the recent National Day holidays.

Some 34 hotels have been opened for medical observation for people who entered the capital after September 3, when the city resumed some global flights.

Qingdao is conducting a citywide nucleic acid testing campaign covering all of its 11 million residents, with the results expected to be released on Friday evening.

Chinese hospitals are now treating 253 people for COVID-19, with another 381 people being monitored in isolation for having testing positive for the virus without showing symptoms or for being suspected cases. China has reported 4,634 deaths among 85,659 confirmed cases.
