BEIJING: China was once the epicentre of the deadly coronavirus but went back to the old normal soon as the world struggled to control the spread of the pandemic. However, things seem to be getting worse in Asian country once again.
On Wednesday, China reported its highest daily number of COVID infections in the past few months. This came as mass testing and contact tracing campaigns revealed a trail of Delta variant. China reported 71 domestic cases on Wednesday, which is the highest since January and is being labelled as one of the worst outbreaks of coronavirus in the country. This new number was found as the local government started mass contact tracing and testing programmes around the country and put millions of people under strict lockdown.
Locals were seen waiting in long queues outside testing centres in China, even in the areas battling severe humid and hot temperatures. (IANS)
