The Shanghai case is a close contact of a case in another province, having taken a high-speed train from Shanghai to his hometown on December 1 and attending a gathering, during which he had contact with the case. He returned to Shanghai on December 4.

Forty-one people who had close links with him have been put under medical observation. A total of 11,334 persons had been screened as of Wednesday morning. All results were negative. A total of 596 environmental samples have been collected, and all also tested negative.

Phase Four of Yulanxiangyuan residential complex in Zhangjiang Town in Pudong has been elevated to a medium-level risk area, bringing the total number of medium-level risk areas in the city to five.

At a press briefing this morning, Wu Jinglei, head of the Shanghai Health Commission, announced that, according to the requirements of the guidance on the prevention and control of the epidemic, Shanghai will implement strict limits on the holding of artistic performances, sports events, festivals, activities, meetings or celebrations. Large-scale gatherings will be canceled or delayed, or held with a strictly controlled number of participants.
