NHC says, epidemic is still in rapidly developing phase and remains complicated in China
On Saturday, Mi Feng, an NHC spokesperson warned that COVID-19 outbreaks have swept 14 provincial-level regions across China in the past two weeks.
He said that the current epidemic is still in a rapidly developing phase and remains complicated.
There is evidence of a fresh epidemic resurgence in the regions including east China’s Jiangxi province and northeast China’s Heilongjiang province.
Global Times reported that these provinces in China are grappling with transmission chain.
Mass testing has detected new cases suggesting that viral spread has caused community transmission and thus poses the risk of further spreads or spillovers, according to the NHC.
The number of domestically transmitted cases in the Chinese mainland on Saturday was 48, with 19 from Heilongjiang, 10 from north China’s Inner Mongolia, nine from northwest China’s Gansu, three in east China’s Shandong, and three in northwest China’s Ningxia.
Another two were reported in southwest China’s Yunnan, one in Beijing and one in east China’s Jiangxi, according to data from the National Health Commission (NHC).
A region in the county was labelled as medium-risk on Sunday, raising the total medium-risk regions in China to 26 and total high-risk regions to two, the report said.
The outbreak in the China-Russia border city Heihe, Heilongjiang, which is an isolated viral chain that was caused by an imported case and is unrelated to cases in Inner Mongolia or Gansu, rapidly escalated since October 27.
