Corona situation in China is getting worse. According to officials, there were 31,444 new infections in a single day across the country. This is the highest value since the pandemic began almost three years ago.

Compared to other countries and with a population of 1.4 billion, the number of new infections is relatively low. However, the state and party leadership have been following a strict zero-covid policy since the outbreak in Wuhan almost three years ago.

Meaning: wherever the virus is, strict measures are taken against it. These include contact tracing, mandatory quarantine in central shelters, closed offices and shops, exit restrictions and travel bans in cities of more than one million people.

Millions of Chinese are under lockdown
