There are 1,541 asymptomatic patients of COVID-19 under observation as of Monday, among which 205 are imported cases.
The plans for epidemic prevention and control of asymptomatic patients will be enhanced, while the government will do more to screen and monitor so that these people will be found timely. Also, the government will strengthen management and treatment of such patients and focus more on publicizing relevant knowledge to the citizens.
Asymptomatic patients refer to those who do not show any symptoms, including fever and cough, but test positive.
