Six Shanghai districts achieve “zero covid” status

Public transport is allowed again in five of the six city districts


China’s financial hub, Shanghai, has been curbing Covid transmission risks at the community level, with the exception of cases in quarantine centers, where six of its 16 districts have achieved zero Covid status, an official said on Sunday.

This status is achieved when a district has three consecutive days with no new daily increase in infections, city government official Gu Honghui told a news conference.

Public transport may resume in five of the six districts, a city health official added, but did not say when.

Despite the drop in transmissions, Shanghai will launch another round of citywide PCR and antigen testing from Sunday to May 7, Gu added.
