He had been in close contact with a previously diagnosed COVID-19 patient and undergone medical observation at a designated venue before returning home, the city's health bureau said.

Guangzhou reported no new local infections on Thursday.

Since the outbreak on May 21, Guangzhou has recorded 144 local patients and seven local asymptomatic carriers.
