China Says Imported COVID Cases Surged to 32 over the Last 24 Hours

September 18, 2020

BEIJING — China says imported coronavirus cases surged to 32 over the previous 24 hours.

Thirteen of the newly confirmed cases reported Friday were in the northern province of Shaanxi, whose capital Xi’an is a major industrial center. The eastern financial and business hub of Shanghai reported 12.

China has gone more than a month without reporting any cases of locally transmitted coronavirus cases within its borders.

But it remains highly vigilant for cases brought in from outside the country. It has suspended issuing new visas and anyone arriving from abroad is required to undergo a two-week quarantine.

Schools, businesses, transport and public services have largely resumed normal operations under social distancing, mask wearing and location tracking requirements.
