KUALA LUMPUR (July 29): China has reported 101 new Covid-19 cases on Tuesday, up from 68 cases a day earlier, the country’s health commission said, according to a report by Reuters today.
As of yesterday, the People’s Republic had 84,060 confirmed coronavirus cases while the death toll has remained at 4,634, said the commission.
Reuters said China “had largely brought the virus under control since it first emerged in the country late last year” but a number of small outbreaks recently “has given cause for concern”.
And the health authorities are now on alert if the virus starts to break out again.
Health officials in Dalian on Sunday told the news wire that they would mass-test all six million residents within four days, and that samples had already been taken from 1.68 million people on Monday.
Meanwhile, the same report stated that Fujian is set to go into "wartime mode" after an asymptomatic patient travelled from Dalian, which is 1,500km away.
The mode calls for “increased scrutiny” of people who enter the city from virus hotspots in the country.
