The recent resurgence of sporadic COVID-19 cases in China may have originated from the port city of Yingkou, Liaoning Province, and have links to imported cases, a top Chinese epidemiologist said, as local authorities have yet to determine the source of infection.
 

Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), made this judgement based on the onset time of latest cases and locations of the two cities.
 

Although the city of Lu’an in East China’s Anhui Province reported a confirmed case first, the time of onset for Yingkou cases in Liaoning Province was earlier, Wu told the Chinese media.
 

“Usually, it has been either imported cases or items that have resulted in new cases in China… As an inland province, the possibility that Anhui’s resurgence resulted from imported cases is low. But Liaoning, the province where Yingkou is located, had reported several domestic outbreaks triggered by imported cases.”
 

One community in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, was raised to a medium-risk region for COVID-19 on Sunday, bringing the total number of medium-risk regions relating to the resurgence of sporadic COVID-19 cases to 13.
 

本轮疫情源头可能是辽宁营口

5月15日晚,中国疾控中心流行病学首席专家吴尊友在接受采访时表示,虽然此次本土疫情首个确诊病例来自安徽六安,但此次疫情源头很有可能是从辽宁营口开始传播的。吴尊友称,虽然此次本土疫情首个确诊病例来自安徽六安,但安徽属于内陆省份,直接由境外输入疫情可能性不大,而营口在辽宁,去年该省发生若干起境外输入引发的地方传播疫情。因此问题出自这儿的可能性很大,所有国人务必当心。
