The number of cases in Shanghai, the country’s financial center, exceeded 26 thousand and reached a new record.
Despite the epidemic measures, the number of Covid-19 cases in China continues to rise. In Shanghai, one of the largest cities in the country, 26,087 cases were detected.
In recent weeks, the difference between the number of cases that have turned into disease and the number of cases that have not turned into a disease has been growing. This is considered to be the result of the spread of the Omicron variant, which is highly contagious but has a milder disease course.
Due to the increasing cases in Shanghai, the closure announced on March 28 was extended indefinitely in the whole city.
It was reported that all citizens will be subjected to mass testing in Guangcou after 10 cases were detected.
