The surge in COVID-19 cases has crippled China as nearly 30 million people live in lockdown across the country. China reported 5,280 new cases of Covid-19 on Tuesday after the highly transmissible variant of Omicorn engulfed several cities. According to reports, at least 13 cities in the country have been fully closed and several other cities have been partially closed. On Tuesday, more than 3,000 cases were reported in Jilin province in the northeast of the country. Shenzhen – the southern tech hub of 17.5 million people – is under lockdown with many businesses, factories and markets closed. COVID-19 restrictions have also been imposed in Shanghai, China’s largest city. Project manager Mary Yue has been in home quarantine for 21 days with her mother and three-year-old child since they visited a ‘virus-infected’ playground. “I panicked when the health officials called… I was afraid they were taking us to a quarantine hotel,” the 34-year-old told AFP. “But this time they’re letting people isolate themselves at home. It’s a huge relief,” he added.
