Abstract

With the COVID-19 epidemic quickly under control in China in the early stage of 2020, global cooperation/ communications may pose great challenges to epidemic control and prevention in the country. Large-scale spread by asymptomatic carriers was a concern. We obtained data on new cluster outbreak regions with COVID-19 caused by asymptomatic carriers from June 2020 to May 2021 in China, and reported the epidemiological characteristics, the possible routes of viral transmission and infection, and different control strategies. These results show the importance of regular screening for high-risk populations and differential management strategies for epidemic control, which provide an objective basis for suppressing the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These experiences can be used as a reference to minimize the subsequent spread of virus mutants in various places.
