In another precautionary measure, isolation was temporarily imposed on a police station in the 13th arrondissement of Paris due to the suspicion of another infection with the virus, after three Chinese tourists arrived at the center to file a complaint, and then the isolation was lifted after it became clear that the infection was not valid.
