BEIJING: As cases of Covid-Covid-19 covid-virus are on the rise in China, many other cities and metropolises, after Shanghai, are beginning to implement restrictions such as shutdowns.
- Restrictions were eased in view of the plight of the people in Shanghai
- On the other hand the introduction of controls in many other cities
Shanghai, a city of 2.5 billion people, which has been experiencing severe lockdowns for more than three weeks now, is seeing loosening of controls due to widespread grievances, complaints and resentment, while other cities are moving toward lockdown-like controls as the coronavirus spreads to other parts of China. Even in Shanghai, however, most businesses are still closed. The industrial city of Guangzhou, with a population of 1.3 million, near Hong Kong, has also been put in a state of lockdown this week. Intercity bus services have been suspended in the city of Taiyuan in central China with a population of 3 million. Residents in southeastern Ningde have been barred from leaving. The cities of Shenzhen and Guangzhou have also been closed since March 16 and mass testing of people has begun.
