The women’s family members visited Wuhan, Hubei province from late December to early January, including her 10-year-old grandson, the boy’s parents and grandparents on his mother’s side. Excepting the boy’s mother, all were infected afterward. The woman was then infected. This was Shenzhen’s first case of infections in a family cluster.

Now only her son’s father-in-law is under treatment in the hospital.

As of Saturday at noon, Shenzhen confirmed a total of 170 confirmed cases and had 327 close contacts under medical observation.
