Record numbers of Covid cases in China as the virus surges nationwide

Record numbers of Covid cases in China as the virus surges nationwide

Despite stringent measures designed to eliminate the virus, China has recorded its highest number of daily Covid cases since the pandemic began.

Including the capital Beijing and southern trade hub Guangzhou there are Covid outbreaks in several major cities. This Wednesday the South Asian country recorded 31,527 Covid cases, which is higher than the 28,000 peaks recorded in April, when Shanghai, the largest city of the country was locked down. The new record comes as the strict lockdowns continue to spark unrest-ness.

The zero-Covid policy of China has saved lives in the country with a 1.4 billion population but it also became a punishing blow to ordinary people's lives and the economy. The country slightly relaxed some of its Covid restrictions and after a few weeks, the wave of cases rose.

China is the last major economy that is still pursuing a Covid eradication process with lockdown rules and mass testing. However, now virus cases are being recorded in 31 provinces. Though China is witnessing an increase in Covid infection, the death rate is still far lower than many other advanced economies at their pandemic peak.
