On Sunday, the Chinese city of Tianjin confirmed an asymptomatic person, a passenger who arrived on a Lufthansa LH342 charter flight from Frankfurt to Tianjin. This case was discovered on Sunday between midnight and 6 a.m. local time, as the city's daily statements show.
These charter flights are part of an accelerated entry process offered by Beijing, as China and Germany are trying to get their economies back on their feet after months of suspension. The flight to Tianjin carried around 200 passengers, mainly German business people.
Lufthansa has planned another charter flight to Shanghai on Wednesday.
A 34-year-old German engineer tested positive for the corona virus upon arrival in Tianjin, but has no symptoms, the Tianjin government said on its official social media platform, Weibo.
The asymptomatic patient was taken to a local hospital for medical monitoring, the Tianjin government said, adding that the whole process was a "closed loop," which is not a major risk for the Chinese public.
The number of confirmed cases on the mainland as of May 30 was 83,001, according to data from the NHC.
With no new deaths reported, the death toll in the country remained at 4,634.
