The Guangdong provincial authority even issued guidelines on administrative law enforcement during the novel coronavirus outbreak on this Tuesday.
In addition, those who are aware they likely carry the coronavirus but do not self-report or seek medical treatment for their health condition, will be held responsible, even criminally.
