The four new confirmed cases are infected with the highly-contagious Delta variant, according to the Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre.
Macau entered “immediate prevention status” soon after the government reported that a family of four locals tested positive in the afternoon.
To prevent the spread of Covid-19 in Macau, a set of mandates has been enforced, including the requirement for all people leaving Macau to present proof of a negative Covid-19 test result conducted within the 24 hours since yesterday afternoon and the classification of the residential building inhabited by the family as a “red-code zone .”
The officials have cordoned off the building. No residents are permitted to leave the area until they test negative for Covid-19 or until further notice.[To be updated]
