    Shanghai finds new Omicron subvariant

    CNA – The city of Shanghai has discovered a COVID-19 case involving a new Omicron subvariant BA.5.2.1, an official told a briefing yesterday, signalling the complications China faces to keep up with new mutations as it pursues its “zero-COVID” policy.

    The case, found in the financial district of Pudong on July 8, was linked with a case from overseas, said Vice-Director of the city’s Health Commission Zhao Dandan.

    Shanghai, in eastern China, emerged from a lockdown lasting around two months at the start of June, but it has continued to impose tough restrictions, locking down buildings and compounds as soon as new potential transmission chains emerge.
