The cases have been reported in Huangpu Township since July 16 and more cases may be reported soon, according to a statement from the provincial health department.

All of the patients have been hospitalized. None of them have recently traveled to Southeast Asia, where most infections occur, indicating that the outbreak is not imported, it said.
