The passengers were found to be infected with the wildly transmissible Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus, which was first detected in India.


The outbreak followed a flare-up of coronavirus cases in the adjacent city of Guangzhou in early June. The city imposed lockdowns and conducted mass testing after detecting 147 new cases. The Guangzhou outbreak was also believed to be driven by the delta variant.
