Covid19 – China re-imposes lockdown due to spike in cases

China recorded more than 100 cases over 11 provinces last week, due to which the country is re-imposing fresh lockdown.

Despite 75% of China’s population of more than a billion people is fully vaccinated, the cases continue to spread.

China’s latest outbreak has been linked to the contagious Delta variant, with the tally from the latest spread hitting 198 cases since October 17.

Health officials have warned that more infections may emerge as testing is ramped up in the coming days to fight the outbreak, which has been linked to a group of domestic tourists.

Stay-at-home orders have already been imposed in Northern China .Authorities in Beijing have advised citizens not to leave the city unless necessary.
