(ANSA) – BEIJING, Sept. 13 – China is grappling with a new delta-type outbreak in southeastern Fujian Province where more than 70 infections have been detected, many of them in children, still putting its ‘zero-tested’ Covid-19 policy. .
Less than a month after the June outbreak detected in Nanjing was contained, dozens of cases have emerged so far in the area, according to local authorities. The group was discovered thanks to routine tests in schools, where two students tested positive on Friday: the father of the two children, who had returned from Singapore in early August, was found infected. Health officials believe this may be the origin of the recent outbreak, in a region that is a rich manufacturing hub for athletic shoes, clothing and electronics components.
There are more than 70 infections in three cities: Xiamen, Quanzhou and Putian, which in last Sunday’s bulletin issued today by the National Health Commission recorded 22 cumulative cases. Another 13 asymptomatic were found in Putian.
The county has so far recorded 43 locally active infections since Sept. 10 and 32 asymptomatic cases, all under medical observation, for a total of 75. Nationwide, there are 27 new imported cases related to Sunday, including 17 in Yunnan, 5 in Shanghai, 3 in Guangdong and one each in Sichuan and Shaanxi. (Dealing).
