China Has Completed Tests on More Than 4.7 Million Residents in Kashgar

October 28, 2020

BEIJING — Authorities in Kashgar prefecture in northwest China’s Xinjiang region say they have completed tests on more than 4.7 million residents following the country’s latest coronavirus outbreak over the weekend.

The regional health authority said Wednesday that more than 200 confirmed or suspected cases have been found in Kashgar’s Shufu county, where the outbreak occurred.

While China has contained the nationwide outbreak since the coronavirus emerged in the central city of Wuhan last year, small regional clusters continue to appear. China has reported a total of 85,868 coronavirus cases and 4,634 deaths from COVID-19.

The economy and schools have almost entirely re-opened in China, but social distancing measures and mask wearing mandates remain in force.
