The plans should prioritize the testing of vulnerable groups and areas like residential compounds, the document is cited as saying.
Six locally transmitted cases, reported on May 10 and 11, were found in people already under quarantine classed as being asymptomatic before testing positive, according to the local government. All six cases emerged from a single residential compound in Wuhan and were the first new infections found in the city since its lockdown was lifted on April 8. ■
