People living in Guangzhou were marked with the star on Friday, April 8, the first day of the recent omicron outbreak. 

Travel codes are updated every two weeks and depending on the current pandemic situation, the star will be removed or remain. 

As Guangzhou has seen a steady decline in cases over the past few days, with the small number of cases largely confined to the Baiyun District, the star was removed when the code was updated today. 

Kindergartens and primary schools will return to offline teaching on Monday, April 25 as the city starts to return to normal.

At 9pm on Thursday evening, Guangzhou reported 11 asymptomatic cases of COVID-19. At 8am this morning, four symptomatic cases were reported. 

Three areas in the city’s Baiyun District have been downgraded to low-risk areas, including Sanyuan Li Road, one of the worse affected areas during the outbreak.
