                                Prosecutors in Beijing have approved the arrest of a COVID-19 patient who was accused of concealing the illness upon entering China from the United States in March.

                                Surnamed Li, the woman is a Chinese national living in the United States with her family.

                                According to the People's Procuratorate of Beijing Municipality on Tuesday, Li started to develop fever and other symptoms on March 1 in the United States. She made several visits to local hospitals for treatment, during which one of her colleagues was diagnosed with COVID-19.

                                The prosecutors said Li, along with her husband and son, took Air China flight CA988 and arrived in Beijing on March 13. Before boarding the plane, Li took medication to keep body temperature normal. She did not declare her symptoms to flight attendants.

                                Li was tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival, while her husband was diagnosed with the disease on March 16. More than 60 people who came in close contact with them on the flight were put under quarantine.

                                Prosecutors said Li was arrested for impairing the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.

                                To deal with imported COVID-19 cases, the Beijing Capital International Airport on March 10 designated Zone D of Terminal 3 a special zone for inbound flights. All passengers arriving on such flights are required to fill health declaration cards and put under quarantine.
