Zhuhai, South China's Guangdong Province, on Monday reported an asymptomatic case related to the recent COVID-19 resurgence in Nanjing, East China's Jiangsu Province, prompting officials to initiate closed management in some areas and start a city-wide nucleic acid testing.

The person asymptomatically infected with the coronavirus took a flight from Nanjing Lukou International Airport to Zhuhai Airport on July 19, received medical observation at a quarantine hotel starting Wednesday, was nucleic acid-tested positive on Sunday and diagnosed as an asymptomatic case, according to a statement the Zhuhai government released on Monday.

Zhuhai's epidemic prevention and control center on Monday announced closed management in several areas, and that the city will complete a round of city-wide nucleic acid testing before the end of Tuesday.

This is another expansion of the COVID-19 resurgence in Nanjing Lukou International Airport. 

Prior to Zhuhai, COVID-19 cases related to Nanjing airport outbreak had been found in five provinces: Zhongshan in South China's Guangdong Province, Mianyang in Southwest China's Sichuan Province, Hexian county and Wuhu city in East China's Anhui Province, Suqian in East China's Jiangsu Province and Shenyang in Northeast China's Liaoning Province, China Central Television reported on Sunday evening.
