At a press conference, Zhao Dandan, deputy director of Shanghai’s municipal health commission, said the city of 25 million reported only 77 confirmed locally transmitted COVID-19 cases on Monday and 746 asymptomatic local cases. He said all confirmed cases were in quarantine or closed management areas.

The number of infections reported Sunday and Monday in Shanghai remained below 1,000 a day. According to statements made at the press conference, less than a million people now live in “closed management areas”. On Monday, Shanghai Vice Mayor Zong Ming said “the epidemic has been effectively brought under control and prevention measures have achieved gradual success.”

In light of the new surge experienced by Shanghai at the start of Mach, the municipality has adopted the zero-COVID dynamic approach for the business center, which has classified the entire city into closed management zones, restrictive control zones and zones of prevention.

Pour lutter contre la vague à Shangai, plus de 30 000 médecins du pays ont été mobilisés en soutien au système de santé de la ville. Avec pour objectif principal de surmonter les goulots d’étranglement de la logistique et d’aider les plateformes de commerce électronique à augmenter leur capacité de transport, la ville a intensifié ses efforts de travail.

Entre-temps, les travailleurs et les bénévoles des communautés locales ont fourni des fournitures pour couvrir les besoins quotidiens des résidents, et les organisateurs d’achats groupés ont également fait leur part.
