HEFEI, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Lu'an City of east China's Anhui Province on Saturday reported one new confirmed locally-transmitted COVID-19 case, according to the municipal health commission.

The case, a 29-year-old female, is a close contact of a previously confirmed local case and had been put under medical observation since May 13, said the commission.

As of Saturday, Lu'an had registered six confirmed cases of local transmissions and 12 asymptomatic cases in the recent resurgence of the virus.
