Guangzhou, capital of southern China's Guangdong Province, ordered people arriving in the city from other countries to undergo nucleic acid testing (NAT) to screen for coronavirus and be quarantined for 14 days, local authority said Sunday.

Those who entered China, with Guangzhou as the destination, via Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and borders outside Guangzhou and had previously been abroad over the past 14 days will also be subject to NAT, according to the latest notice issued by the municipal headquarters for the COVID-19 prevention and control.

They should undergo a 14-day home observation or self-paid concentrated medical observation, the notice said.

The Chinese mainland reported 45 new imported COVID-19 cases on Saturday, bringing the total number of imported cases to 314, according to the National Health Commission.
