The Beijing Olympic Committee on Sunday reported 10 new Games-related Covid-19 cases, the organizers said in a statement.
Of the new cases, four were detected among new airport arrivals and six were found inside the “closed loop system" — a bubble cut off from the rest of the Chinese capital and its wider population.
Six of the 10 cases involve athletes or team officials, the statement said.
Beijing is taking stringent coronavirus measures at the Games, in line with China's zero-Covid policy.
Inside the bubble, anyone who tests positive is immediately removed from the Games. Those who are symptomatic are sent to a designated hospital for treatment, while asymptomatic cases are taken to an isolation facility. They aren't allowed to return to the bubble until all symptoms disappear and they test negative twice in a row.
"Smooth progress": Officials are hopeful the Games will continue to see a downward trend of new Covid-19 cases.
"With less number of arrivals, there will be less positive cases," Beijing 2022 health official Huang Chun said at a news conference Sunday, adding officials "do not see any cluster spreading."
"It has not affected the smooth progress of the competition," Huang said.
As of Sunday, a total of 814,376 Covid-19 tests have been administered inside the "closed loop" system since Jan. 23, and 12,555 people have arrived in Beijing, according to Games organizers.
