SH enters decisive battle to stamp out infections within


Shanghai has entered a "decisive battle" to stamp out coronavirus infections within communities since Friday, as the local government announced measures to double down on quarantine measures in residential compounds and scale up nucleic acid tests. Epidemiologists believe those are necessary steps for the metropolis to clear up COVID-19 infections within communities as soon as early May.

Despite positive signs in Shanghai such as the downward trending of cases found outside the quarantined areas and more people being discharged from quarantine centers and hospitals, the numbers of deaths and people in severe conditions are rising. Experts said the treatment of severe cases will be the main priority for the next stage of the battle against COVID-19 in Shanghai. The city, engine of Chinas economic development, also ramped up business resumption amid strict epidemic control in order to assuage the stitches left by long-term stagnation.

Shanghais battle against COVID-19 has entered a key phase of stamping out viral infections within residential communities, the Shanghai authority told media on Friday in answering how long the citywide lockdown will last. Officials said the lockdown would be lifted in batches when virus transmissions outside quarantined areas are eliminated. A new round of testing has also been announced specifically categorized for different districts.

The Shanghai municipal government said the city's epidemic was showing a "positive trend" and that life in the city could return to normal soon as long as the policy was strictly adhered to.

The health authority also stressed the importance of sticking to the zero-COVID policy in Shanghai, and said the metropolis, an important port city in China, also faces the threat of imported infections. Officials also said there should be a swift response to staunch newly discovered infections, if they are found to have emerged.


Shanghai on Thursday night announced to step up COVID-19 testing and control in a new campaign from Friday involving "nine major" measures, some of which include more testing for all of its residents, restricting mobility to curb viral infections and rolling out epidemiological investigations.

Shanghai reported 15,698 new local asymptomatic coronavirus cases for Thursday, down from 15,861 one day earlier.The city also recorded 11 more COVID-19 patient deaths on Thursday, making the total number up to 36. All those deceased are elderly people, with average age around 80 years old, who were suffering from underlying conditions, and COVID wasnt the direct cause of their deaths, Shanghai officials said.
