South China's Guangdong Province has ruled out possible Ebola cases as 43 people suspected of infection tested negative for the deadly virus, local health authorities said on Tuesday.

A total of 8,672 people from Ebola-ridden areas entered the province since August 23, said Chen Yuansheng, director with the provincial health and family planning commission.

So far, 5,437 people have been discharged from medical observation, Chen added.

China's largest trade fair Canton Fair opened its 116th session in Guangdong on Wednesday, drawing a huge influx of foreign visitors. Authorities have tightened examination to avoid possible spread of the disease.

So far, no Ebola cases have been reported in China.
