The number of cases is down by 16 from the 38 reported yesterday and all of the new infections in the city are in the Baiyun District. 

A decrease in numbers and the fact that all new patients are only in the Baiyun District could signal that the spread of the virus is under control.

One of the previously confirmed cases in the Haizhu District works at the Jing Ye Originality Park on Nanzhou Street.

All persons who visited the area’s first floor from March 23 to April 10 must isolate at home, report to their local community and report their visit by calling 020-66850121 or 020-66850128.
