Hubei authorities rolled out citywide testing in Wuhan starting from August 3 after six asymptomatic cases were reported in the city the day before. Contact tracing and nucleic test results show the cases were related to four confirmed cases in Huaian, East China's Jiangsu Province and were transmitted by the Delta variant.
