Intense week for China facing Covid-19 new outbreak

Intense week for China facing Covid-19 new outbreak

Beijing, Aug 7 (Prensa Latina) Covid-19 once again is news in China, now due to a new outbreak keeping tension high today because it increased local cases this week and emerged with the Delta variant.

The Government is on alert due to the rapid spread of the virus in some twenty provinces and the concentration of infectious outbreaks in at least three cities.

In recent days, they ordered the corresponding departments to use up all resources necessary to contain the outbreak, as it is already considered the worst after the emergence of the pandemic in Wuhan.

The National Immigration Administration suspended the delivery of passports and other travel documents, reinforced surveillance at the borders with other countries and also the supervision of each ship, passenger and cargo arriving at air and maritime terminals.

A hundred areas classified as dangerous for contagion stopped transportation, resorted to confinement, PCR tests and mass vaccination even in those under 18 years of age.

Places like Macao closed all recreational areas except casinos, while Beijing banned flights, vehicles and personnel from provinces with cases, canceled public events and prepared 22 hotels to accommodate members of the Chinese delegation when returning from the Olympics in Tokyo.

China totals at least 5,642 deaths and 121,437 cases on mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan since the emergence of the disease.

In addition, 571 asymptomatic patients are under medical care.
