Northeast China's Liaoning province reported two new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Sunday, according to the province's health commission. They were asymptomatic cases a day earlier.

Both patients, surnamed Wang and Lang, are close contacts of patients confirmed in Beijing on Friday.

According to the local health authority, Wang and Lang are staff workers at the China Meat Food Research Center in Beijing. They came to Shenyang via high speed train Thursday and were found to be infected late Friday.

Both are now being treated at the Sixth People's Hospital of Shenyang. One has mild symptoms and the other is in normal condition.

The local authority released an emergent notice early this morning that all close contacts with Wang and Lang must report to local government as soon as possible and start 14 days of self-quarantine to meet safety concerns.

As of Saturday, the province has reported 151 confirmed cases of COVID-19, of which 147 have been cured. Two are under treatment and two died.
