Official: A Turning Point for Shanghaiers, Lockdown to be Lifted

Offcial: A Turning Point for Shanghaiers, Lockdown Expected to be Lifted

Six districts in Shanghai realize zero COVID-19 transmissions in communities, said Shanghai authorities.

Shanghai continued to see declining new COVID infections with 788+7,084 local infections and 38 deaths found on Saturday, said the Shanghai Health Commission on Sunday morning. 683 confirmed patients were previously asymptomatic infections. Another 105 confirmed patients and all of the asymptomatic cases were detected during central quarantine, 

The risk of COVID-19 community transmission in Shanghai has been effectively contained and six districts including Fengxian, Jinshan, Chongming, Qingpu, Songjiang and Putuo have realized no community transmissions.

It's said that citywide lockdown will only be lifted when the 0 goal (0 community transmision) is reached across the city. So how much do you know anput the standards? In a word, taking administrative region as a unit, the number of positive cases in the area (including control areas, precautionary areas, and personnel outside closed-loop management, etc.) is decreasing day by day, and the risk is controllable:

Basic 0: For 3 consecutive days, new case/total population in the region is less than 1/100,000; 

Social 0: For 3 consecutive days, 0 case is reported in the region.

Till today, The population in lockdown and under control decreased to around 3,000,000 and 6,000,000 respectively while the population in precaution area increased to around 15 million. Shanghai has a population of over 25 million.

The epidemic prevention and control work in the city is still at a critical stage with the situation being grim and complex, thus the management and control at the community level still should be strengthened, Zhao Dandan, deputy director of Shanghai Municipal Heath Commission, announced at a press briefing, urging the public not to relax or gather and reduce the flow of people to consolidate the hard-won achievements in epidemic prevention and control over the past month.

The general public is requested to continue to cooperate with PCR testing + Antigen testing. 'Limited activity' is still requested. Citizens in theprecautionary zones must present green health codes and negative Antigen test result within 24 hours or negative PCR certificate within 48 hours to enter public venues.

To be noted: Even if you're in precautionary zone, it might not always mean you can get out of the compound. Actually, each district can dynamically adjust relevant prevention measures based on situations. Current management and control measures can be upgraded and tightened if it's considered still risky.

Pudong New Area will implement differentiated control measures on streets and towns. At present, 5 towns in Pudong New Area, including Xuanqiao, Nicheng, Datuan, Wanxiang and Laogang, have met the standard of basically 0 transmission in communities.
