Guangdong reported six news cases of COVID-19 yesterday, while Hong Kong had one and Macau had none. Two new deaths were reported yesterday in Shenzhen, bringing the GBA’s total to five since the outbreak began.
The new infection figure saw a sharp decline over the past two days, from 33 on Friday and 22 on Saturday, according to the Guangdong Health Commission.
The newly-added cases were reported from six different cities – Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Zhuhai, and Zhongshan – plus two from outside of the GBA, in Maoming and Heyuan.
So far, more than one-third of confirmed patients have left hospital, including 37 cases discharged on Sunday alone.
The provincial infection number has been dropping steadily over the past two weeks, from 127 at the beginning of Feb, as various containment measures have been enforced by city governments including entry restrictions to the province and lockdown in local communities.
For the nine GBA cities in Guangdong, as of 9 am today, Shenzhen has 415, Guangzhou 339, Zhuhai 97, Dongguan 89, Foshan 84, Zhongshan 66, Huizhou 58, Jiangmen 23 and Zhaoqing 17.
