XIAMEN - Seven COVID-19 patients were discharged from hospital in the city of Xiamen, East China's Fujian province, on Saturday after recovery.

This is the first batch of patients released since cluster infections of Delta variant occurred in the city earlier this month, according to local authorities.

The seven patients, aged between 33 and 51, were transferred to a medical facility for rehabilitation after leaving the hospital.
