A notice claiming that a positive case was detected at the PCR test site of the Carrefour store in Qibao Town has been confirmed as a rumor.
Circulating in the chat groups of many residential compounds in Minhang District, the notice is claimed to have been released by Sanjia residential compound.
According to authorities, the Carrefour store in Qibao Town is housed indoors in the CapitaLand Mall and the nearest regular nucleic acid testing site is located outdoors east of the shopping center.
