Guangzhou and Foshan reported new COVID-19 cases, causing disruptions to not just port operations but also cargo transport. The cases in Guangzhou and Foshan are thought to be related to a dim sum restaurant, but the cases in Yantian were related to a foreign ship in the port area.
As a result of COVID-19 cases, Yantian Port said it would stop accepting heavy containers waiting for export from Tuesday. From Monday the port would only accept heavy export containers with an estimated time of arrival within three days. This regulation will last until June 6.
According to Shenzhen TV, more than 20,000 export containers piled up at the port.
