The health authorities specified that the only contagion detected in the entire country during this Friday was identified in the Tianjin municipality, in the north of the country.
According to the official source, it was a contagion from abroad, one of the so-called “imported” cases that have worried Beijing so much in recent weeks and that led to the decree prohibiting foreigners from entering the country since 28 March and at the border closure with Russia in the northeast of the Chinese territory.
