MACAO, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- China's Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) on Friday reported one new COVID-19 case which was related to a previously reported imported case, according to the Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Center of Macao.

The patient is a 27-year-old man of Nepalese nationality, working as a security guard for a local hotel, the center said.

He tested positive after the health authority required staff of the hotel to go through testing following a previously reported imported case.

The imported case, a 31-year-old Macao resident who returned from Turkey via Singapore, was sent for medical observation at the hotel, the center said.

The Nepalese man has developed minor respiratory symptoms, and is receiving further medical treatment, according to the center.
