On March 10, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) reported that there were local infections in East Timor in recent weeks, and the country has declared a state of emergency. Additionally, Mauritius reported its first locally-transmitted coronavirus case last week, and a second wave of infection has occurred in Mauritius. Therefore, the CECC has moved East Timor and Mauritius to its list of medium-risk countries/regions from its low-risk category. On the other hand, Hong Kong has met the CECC's criteria for the list of medium-risk countries/regions for four weeks. Thus, the CECC has added Hong Kong back to its list of medium-risk countries/regions. The latest list of the risk categories for countries/regions is as follows:
1. Low-risk countries/regions: New Zealand, Macao, Palau, Fiji, Brunei, Laos, Nauru, the Marshall Islands, Bhutan, Australia.
2. Medium-risk countries/regions: Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong, East Timor, Mauritius.
