China Has Reported Its First New Cases of Local COVID-19 Transmission in Days

BEIJING — China has reported its first new cases of local COVID-19 transmission in days, both in the central province of Anhui that has largely avoided outbreaks. Another five cases were brought from outside the country.

The new cases brings China’s total number of cases to 90,815 with 4,636 deaths since the virus was detected in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in late 2019.

China has almost entirely eradicated local transmission of COVID-19 through strict masking rules, electronic case tracing, quarantines and lockdowns in areas where cases are detected.

Meanwhile around 325 million doses of vaccine have been administered to the population, while China along with Russia, has been active in providing doses to poorer nations that have struggled to procure enough for their citizens.


GENEVA (AP) — The World Health Organization said Friday that COVID-19 no longer qualifies as a global emergency, marking a symbolic end to the devastating coronavirus pandemic that triggered once-unthinkable lockdowns, upended economies and killed millions of people worldwide.
