Guangdong, mainland China, was invaded by the Delta variant virus. The Dongguan Health and Health Commission recently notified that a 30-year-old woman diagnosed with a meal at McDonald’s caused two other customers to contract the disease. However, the young son and elderly mother-in-law who lived with her were not affected. The infection is quite special.
According to a comprehensive Lu media report, when the female diagnosed was dining at a McDonald’s in the Galaxy City Plaza in Macong on June 12, two college students who were dining in the restaurant were infected. However, the youngest son and elderly mother-in-law of the confirmed female patient were not infected. The results of 4 nucleic acid tests performed by the Dongguan Health Unit were negative, which made many people curious.
In this regard, Luo Dong, deputy director of the Dongguan Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said that when the female diagnosed was in a fast food restaurant, the “viral load” might be the highest. The two students happened to run into it. “Current research on the Delta mutant strain It’s still in progress, and the scientists haven’t fully grasped it, personally, this may be the reason why the two students were infected.
As for the child and mother-in-law of the confirmed female patient, will it be okay? Luo Dong said, “This is really hard to say, and there is no final conclusion. We still need to closely observe her family.”
In addition, the Dongguan Health and Health Commission mentioned that after the outbreak, they reviewed consumption records and video surveillance analysis, locked 436 key personnel at McDonald’s in Mayong Galaxy City Plaza, implemented classified health management measures, and strengthened closed-loop management of personnel. And many nucleic acid tests were performed, but the results were all negative.
