Corona wave spreads in china

The delta variant of coronavirus continues to spread in southeast china’s fujian province. Authorities said wednesday that 50 more infections have been discovered in the province.

Since the outbreak of the delta variant last friday, there have been 152 infected people. In two major cities of the province, putian and xiamen, a lockdown had been ordered as a result.

The chinese government is pursuing a "zero covid" strategy. With curfews, mass testing, contact tracing, quarantines and strict entry restrictions, the country has the corona virus largely under control. Recently, however, there has been an accumulation of local outbreaks of the delta variant, despite strict mabnahme.

The current eruption had its origin in putian. It was suspected that a family father brought the virus in after his return from singapore. The man was on 4. August, spent 21 days in quarantine and tested negative for the virus nine times. Last friday, however, a test turned out to be positive.
