The newly detected COVID-19 patient in Guangzhou, South China's Guangdong Province, was found to be associated with an imported case as the genetic sequencing of the patient is highly homologous to that of an imported case reported on Saturday, said an official from Guangzhou Health Commission Sunday.
 

The patient, a 42-year-old female surnamed Xu, worked in an isolation hotel in Guangzhou's Yuexiu district for food delivery and room cleaning.
 

She tested positive for COVID-19 during a routine nucleic acid test in the hotel on Saturday.
 

Considering Xu's genetic sequencing results and epidemiological investigation, she was highly likely to have been infected when she was accidentally exposed to the virus while collecting garbage on Wednesday, said Chen Bin, deputy director of Guangzhou Health Commission, at a press conference on Sunday.
 

Experts' judgement showed that the risk of community transmission was low, Chen said.
 

Xu has been living in the hotel since Tuesday, and the last five routine nucleic acid tests on Saturday were all negative.
 

The hotel has 56 staff members and 103 people living in isolation. Since August, seven imported cases have been reported in the hotel.
 

广州新增阳性与境外输入病例高度同源

9月5日上午,广州市召开疫情防控新闻发布会通报,2021年9月4日,广州市越秀区在对入境隔离酒店工作人员进行例行检测中,排查发现1例新冠肺炎核酸检测阳性人员。接到通报后,流行病学调查快速展开。该人员徐某为越秀区隔离酒店工作人员,女性,42岁,从事送餐和清洁房间等工作。其所在隔离酒店现有工作人员56人,在住隔离人员103人,8月份以来,该隔离酒店累计报告7例境外输入感染者。该工作人员8月30日后均在隔离酒店居住,9月4日的近5次常规核酸筛查均为阴性。基因测序结果显示,该人员与隔离酒店9月4日报告的境外输入确诊病例基因测序高度同源,结合流行病学调查,该人员于9月1日以后被感染的可能性极大,初步判断徐某与境外输入确诊病例相关联,经省市专家研判,社区传播风险较低。
