CHINA: A fresh new surge in COVID-19 cases emerged in China, especially in the eastern part. “Anhui”, the eastern part of China, reported 270 cases, the majority of the 380 domestic cases, including 41 symptomatic ones, reported by the mainland on Monday. According to reports, “Beijing”, the capital of China, has reduced the quarantine period to 10 from 14 days.

The mass scale of testing campaigns and strict isolation norms are being followed. New cases were reported soon after the government had controlled Shanghai’s early summer epidemic to boost domestic travel during the summer holidays.

According to the Xinhua news agency, from June 26 to July 3, 134 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 724 asymptomatic carriers were recorded in Anhui; 132 confirmed cases were from Sixian county, Suzhou City.

The country is the last major economy deemed to have a zero-COVID strategy, responding to all cases with strict isolation orders and tough testing campaigns. Sixian and Lingbi announced lockdowns the previous week, with more than 1.7 million residents only permitted to leave their houses after being tested.

New footage shows mass testing in the streets and people standing in a queue. China’s international isolation has also encouraged many foreign businesses and families with the financial means to make exit plans. This will undoubtedly harm the economy of China devastatingly.
