Parts of northeast China on heightened alert amid new COVID-19 outbreak

BEIJING: A few border cities in northeastern China started to tighten COVID-19 measures, restricting travel and limiting gatherings in public spaces, and some declared a “pre-war” mode of vigilance and monitoring, as China combats an outbreak hitting mainly the north.

China reported 23 locally transmitted symptomatic cases for Wednesday, official data showed on Thursday, down from 50 a day earlier, bringing the total number to 270 since Oct. 17, when the current outbreak began.

Although the aggregate is small compared to many clusters outside China, the spread to more than 12 regions and the zero tolerance policy have forced local authorities to tighten regulations, forcing tourism and catering companies amid the economic slowdown. It is once again squeezing the service sector, including.

In the northeastern part of Heilongjiang Province, which borders Russia, Heihe City detected one case confirmed locally and three asymptomatic cases counted by China separately from the cases with confirmed symptoms on October 27.
