According to local authorities, this means that the municipality reached “zero Covid-19” status and can make further progress in restarting socioeconomic life, although 3.8 million people still remain isolated in their homes.

The city plans to return to normal this month, but first it will reinforce measures in older neighborhoods and other communities at risk of experiencing more outbreaks.

It will also carefully outline a plan to consolidate the results achieved when the gradual return to school and work is decreed, in addition to accelerating the vaccination of elderly people.

Shanghai last month became the epicenter of the Covid-19 outbreak in China and saw a considerable spike in the number of deaths and infections.

Overall, the country has accumulated at least 15,672 deaths and 1,384,126 confirmed cases in the mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan since the emergence of the pathology and the coronavirus that causes it in December 2019.

In addition, 50,461 asymptomatic people are under medical observation.
