On Wednesday, Guangdong reported zero locally transmitted new confirmed cases for the previous day.

While it’s a positive development, authorities are reminding all residents to take necessary safety precautions and get tested if they have any related symptoms, or if they just feel like it. (We added that last part.)

As for residents in Liwan district, signs still aren’t looking great as two medical staff tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.

The lockdown has taken its toll on some residents, as a 28-year-old surnamed Zhang leaped into the murky Pearl River in an escape attempt from Liwan to Haizhu on Saturday night.

The man had reportedly been drinking with his buddies when he came up with the idea. He was detained by authorities upon reaching Haizhu district.

Locally transmitted confirmed COVID-19 cases have tapered off in Guangzhou, and the city has started to lift lockdowns in several areas.
