Shanghai to lift lockdown in some areas despite rise in COVID-19 infections

SHANGHAI (CNA) – Authorities in Shanghai said they would start lifting the lockdown in some areas from yesterday, despite reporting over 25,000 new COVID-19 infections, as they strive to get the city moving again after more than two weeks.

Shanghai classed residential units into three risk categories, to allow those in areas without positive cases for a stretch of two weeks to engage in “appropriate activity” in their neighbourhoods, city official Gu Honghui said.

“Each district will announce the specific names of the first batch (of communities) divided into the three types, and three subsequent lists will be announced in a timely manner,” he told a news briefing.
