DALIAN, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- As the last asymptomatic person infected with COVID-19 in the city of Dalian was discharged from hospital Saturday after two nucleic acid test results were negative, the city cleared all confirmed and asymptomatic infected cases since an outbreak occurred on July 22.

The port city in northeast China's Liaoning Province has reported 92 locally transmitted COVID-19 cases and 26 asymptomatic cases, since a worker at a local seafood processing company was found infected with COVID-19 on July 22 and the ensuing screening led to the discovery of more cases, according to the municipal health commission.

Zhao Lian, deputy director of the commission, said medics have adopted combinations of traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine in treating the COVID-19 infections, with targeted therapy for each case. Enditem
