He said: "Gene sequencing results confirmed that the security guard's case can be traced back to the British variants in the two recently returned travelers in the hotel."
"We learned that the security guard did deliver the medicine to the door of the isolated guest."
"The authorities are conducting further investigations into specific methods of transmission."

Not sure if the security guard is wearing a mask
The Minister of Health Roger Cook corrected a detail from yesterday, clarifying that the security guard told the employer that he was ill on January 1, not January 30.
Mr. Cook said: “After calling his employer, he went to the COVID clinic on the 30th.”
Mr. Cook said that the security's interaction with the passenger took place on January 1.
He said it was not clear whether the security guards were wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
Mr. Cook said: "If people are in their rooms and the security guards are just monitoring that corridor, they don't necessarily wear masks."
Mr. Cook said that this rule is under review.
He said the police had collected CCTV surveillance from the security guard to the gas station in the community on days when he might be contagious.
He said the police had not yet questioned the security guard, partly because of health concerns.
Temporary hotel stay
Passengers who have left the quarantined hotel since January 1 have been ordered to self-quarantine until they get further negative test results.
Continue to block
Mr. McGowan said that even if no new community cases are found, it does not mean that the lockdown will be lifted early.
Mr. McGowan said: "In order to be absolutely certain in the next few weeks, we may have to have a series of measures."
"If we have zero cases from now to Friday, my expectation, not certain, is to lift the current form of strict lockdown on Friday night."
Reduced waiting time at COVID clinics
People who had been to one of the 18 exposed locations were urged to be tested.After two long queues at the Perth test center, the waiting time of many test centers has dropped significantly.
Earlier today, people still queued up at a drive-thru clinic in Joondalup, and hundreds of cars lined up for testing.
However, queuing and waiting times have dropped significantly since then.
Due to the formation of the center of COVID panic in the inner north suburbs, the clinic opened late yesterday.
The waiting time in other clinics has also decreased dramatically.
The Royal Perth Hospital’s clinic has been in long queues for the past two days, but on Tuesday morning it was almost empty.
Expand the scope of contact registration from today
The scope expansion was originally scheduled to take effect later next week.
Test if you have breathing problems
Mr. Cook said that because of the bushfire emergency in Perth, people may have respiratory discomfort, but they should still be tested and not assume it is related to smoke in the air.
G2G enabled for cross-regional travel
But he emphasized that if you are sick, you should not travel.
