A 21-year-old local woman returning from Vietnam has tested positive for Covid-19, the Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre has announced.
The case has been classified as imported and asymptomatic, so it has not been added to Macao’s Covid-19 tally, which stands at 79.
According to the centre, the woman received two Sinopharm inactivated jabs, in November and last month. She tested negative for Covid-19 in a nucleic acid test in Vietnam, before flying to Singapore the same day. She caught a connecting flight to Macao on Wednesday where she tested positive for the novel coronavirus upon arrival, after which she was transferred to the Health Bureau’s Public Health Clinical Centre in Coloane for quarantine.
A follow-up test carried out yesterday confirmed her infection with the novel coronavirus, The Macau Post Daily reported.
