Experts from Tianjin and the National Health Commission have been dispatched to the market to investigate.

On Wednesday, the outer package of imported flatfish sold at a local shop was found to carry the novel coronavirus. The shop's flatfish was bought from the market in Jinnan, media reported.

Meanwhile, the COVID-19 strain taken from samples in Tianjin shows that the virus belongs to the L genotype of the European branch, sharing a high similarity to the confirmed cases in Beijing's Xinfadi market and Hebei Province from June to July.

So far, a total of 8,667 close contacts have been investigated in Tianjin, and 808 people are still under medical observation.
