China undergoes another coronavirus outbreak

China Undergoes Another Coronavirus Outbreak  

Shenzhen, the largest city in the manufacturing hub of Guangdong province, told all businesses not affected by essential public services to suspend production or have employees work from home for a week beginning Monday.

The production breaks include Apple supplier Foxconn, which declared in a statement to CNBC its factories in the city would stay closed until notified by the government.

Sometimes named China’s “Silicon Valley,” the city has shut public transportation and started a third city-wide round of testing. Shenzhen has reported more than 400 confirmed cases after late February.

Those numbers and case counts over China pale in comparison with other countries. But the quick increase in cases in the last few days has local authorities running to control the outbreak as China seeks to maintain its zero-coronavirus strategy.

Shanghai, the coastal metropolis home to many foreign businesses and financial companies in China, has reverted schools to online classes. Some neighbourhoods have joined lockdown and conducted mass testing, and residents commonly cannot leave until negative results.

New Quarantines in China

The city on Saturday informed residents not to leave Shanghai unless required. China has had more than 600 confirmed cases since late February.

Jilin province in northern China notified an overnight surge this past weekend of over 1,000 new locally transmitted COVID-19 cases; it totalled more than 2,900 cases this month as of Sunday.

In all, mainland China registered 1,437 new confirmed cases as of Sunday, with only 100 attributed to travellers from overseas, for a sum of 8,531 domestically transmitted active instances. That’s the most after March 2020. No new deaths have been registered.
