China detected its first local asymptomatic infections in more than a month as two port workers responsible for unloading frozen seafood tested positive, adding to alarm that contaminated imports could be transmitting the coronavirus. The two cases, found in Shandong province's Qingdao city during routine testing of port workers, were the first symptom-free infections that China has reported since Aug. 20. China hasn't reported any local symptomatic infections since Aug. 15 either.

As per news report of NDTV, unlike other nations, China separates asymptomatic and symptomatic cases in its daily tally, and the former are moved into the latter category if and when they start showing signs of illness. The new cases will intensify concern in China over whether imported products are infectious. Traces of the virus have been repeatedly found on frozen, imported seafood and meat and their packaging, as well as in the containers in which they were shipped.
