National

April 7, 2020

ISLAMABAD: China is now afraid of “imported” coronavirus from neighbouring countries and has put in place a complete set of procedures to manage international arrivals amid an increasing risk of imported virus.

A senior Chinese official said in Beijing on Monday that China is strictly implementing prevention and control measures of imported cases before, during and after international travelers' arrivals in the country.

Liu Haitao, a senior official with the National Immigration Administration said that the immigration administration screens international travelers based on big data before they arrive in China and has found and reported to customs authorities 200,000 people from or having travel history to key epidemic-stricken regions. Among the 200,000, 391 were confirmed with coronavirus infections, which accounted for more than 40 percent of overall imported cases to China, Liu said.
