COVID on the rise in China again?

The mid-autumn festival is a period of long holidays in China where most of the citizens step out on vacation. However, advisories have been placed for residents to avoid unnecessary trips or vacation outings as COVID cases are at an all-time rise again in China. Nanjing and Wuxi, major cities in eastern China’s Jiangsu province, took the initiative to advise residents to stay in during the long holiday and other cities followed suit.

On the 6th of September, 1695 new COVID cases were reported which may seem lower in accordance to global standards, however the efforts to eradicate infectious diseases in its entirety have led to many cities in Chine taking maximum precaution. This has shown success to a certain extent, weighing down the numbers three years into the pandemic. China has indicated no sign of lifting precaution policies that have all but shut the country’s borders for international travel.

Beijing reported 14 locally transmitted infections for Tuesday, the capital’s highest daily count since mid-June. All but two of the infections had been quarantined for medical observation before diagnosis, the city said on Wednesday. As a result, travel advisories and health regulations were set in set in place in order to restrict movement of the residents so that the spread doesn’t worsen.

“The whole zone… must strictly and assiduously implement various tasks for Covid-19 prevention and control, in order to create a safe and stable social environment for the party congress,” said the suburban Yizhuang economic and technological development zone in Beijing.

The south-western city of Chengdu, with a population of 21.2 million declared lockdown last Thursday, but is yet to announce a proper plan, putting an end to strict curbs.

The rise of cases of the COVID-19 pandemic have adversely been effecting the economy as inflation rises, as a result of economic activity slowed down due to the imposition of frequent lockdowns.
