Pressure grows on China's zero covid strategy
The number of new Covid infections is rapidly increasing in China. As the responsible authorities announced on Monday, the highest number of new infections in about two years was reported at the beginning of the week. According to the report, more than 500 new cases were registered in mainland China. Previously, Beijing had managed to push the number of infections to almost zero through widespread lockdowns in several cities with millions of inhabitants, strict controls and mass testing. China's borders remain largely closed. Nevertheless, there are currently outbreaks in more than a dozen cities, health authorities said Monday.
