Ms. Li Ming, the vice-mayor of Guangdong's provincial capital in South China, persuaded residents not to panic when they find a growing number of throat-swabbing centers in local communities and housing estates.

Schools in some Provinces in China have opened up.

" Guangzhou has expanded screening to find COVID-19 patients and their close contacts, with an aim to find all the patients, particularly those who have no symptoms, to prevent and control the spread of coronavirus in the city, " Li said at a press conference on Monday.


"Now a large number of residents will be screened once a confirmed case has been reported in the city," Li said. Screened people will be expected to have their nucleic acid tested including the patient's colleagues, people in the same trade, family members, relatives, friends, neighbors, and clients.

" All of the city's more than 35,000 taxi drivers have now been required to have their nucleic acid tested after a taxi driver was detected with a COVID-19 patient last week. All residents in a housing estate in Guangzhou's Yuexiu district also have been required to have their nucleic acid tested when a resident in the housing estate was confirmed with the virus last week," said Li. "And this is why many throat-swabbing centers have been seen in the city recently, " she added.


" More than 200,000 teachers, educational staff and grade three students at junior and senior high schools will be required to have the nucleic acid tests before they resume class next week, " she stated.


Guangzhou province can now test more than 70,000 residents a day taking nucleic acid tests, according to Li.
