China faces a new COVID-19 wave, a week after controlling the spread

A mere week after China had apparently controlled the COVID-19 spread, a new spike in cases in Beijing sent the government scrambling to prevent another major outbreak. China locked down 11 neighborhoods right in the capital city of Beijing after a district reported 45 new cases, all asymptomatic.

Out of the 517 people who tested positive in the Xinfadi wholesale market in the Fengtai district, 45 people tested positive and sent the district in what has been called a “wartime emergency mode” as it shut down schools, ban inter sports events and issue advisories. An official at a press briefing said that they needed to be prepared and not let their guard down for a prolonged fight against the virus, which has already claimed more than 700 thousand lives and infected more than 7 million people. Many officials believe China to be at risk from a “second wave” of the coronavirus.
