Chinese authorities didn’t share details of whether they were infected with the variant of the coronavirus currently prevalent in India.
At least 10 Chinese nationals on a cargo ship docked at a port in eastern China have been found to be infected with a Covid-19 variant from India, health authorities said on Thursday.
Health officials in Zhejiang, a coastal province, said 11 cases of “imported” Covid-19 infections, including 10 from India, were reported in the last 24 hours – all among the 20 Chinese crew members of the ship – from Zhoushan port.
There is one asymptomatic Covid-19 case as well, the health authorities said on social media, a state media report said on Thursday.
According to a state media report, the ship Huayang Chaoyang had docked at Kakinada in Andhra Pradesh earlier this year besides stopping over at Chittagong in Bangladesh, Singapore, and Xiamen in China.
