In the last 2 weeks, China’s new cases jump. Mainland China is facing its worst Covid-19 outbreak since the height of the pandemic in 2020.
Recent outbreaks in 28 provinces have infected more than 15,000 people and stem primarily from the highly transmissible omicron variant.
To quickly cut off the source of the virus, some cities have adopted different policies.
Dongguan city in the southern province of Guangdong ordered employees of businesses to work from home and locked down residential areas, permitting only necessary activities such as buying groceries and taking virus tests. Shenzhen imposes a lockdown for one week and Shanghai restricts nonessential travel.
Fortunately, with the implementation of these measures, the epidemic has begun to be effectively controlled. The number of new infections began to decline. We believe that in two weeks, China can handle everything they encounter again, just like in 2020.
