China steps up inbound Zika checks

China is guarding against inbound Zika virus. Guangdong, south China’s trade hub, has stepped up inbound checks.

It comes after two cases of imported Zika virus were confirmed in the province.

At Baiyun International Airport in Guangdong Province, four infrared devices on the ceiling read body temperatures, sending signals to a nearby monitor.

China confirmed a second imported Zika case Monday, six days after the first. Both entered the mainland through Guangdong.

Both of the confirmed patients had stayed in Venezuela.
