This person is now being treated at the hospital and everyone in this building should wear face masks, the official said, adding another occupant of the same unit had already been quarantined.

The management checked the surveillance camera clips taken during December 1-10 which showed that the infected co-owner had passed through the lobby A reception hall, used the elevators and picked up a parcel from the counter.
