Pandemic: Shanghai Started a Half-City Lock-down

China has continued to report that its COVID-19 infection numbers are increasing and are more than they were previously.

On March 27, Beijing reported 6,215 cases (1,129 confirmed infection cases and 4,996 asymptomatic cases). The CCP is known for hiding COVID information, so the actual infection count is unknown.

Shanghai reported 3,500 cases (50 confirmed infection cases and 3,450 asymptomatic cases), accounting for 56 percent of all announced cases in China. The city, with a population of 26 million, announced a lock-down in Pudong of half of the city on the east side of the Hongpu River from March 28 to April 1 and then a lock-down of Puxi, the other half of the city on the west side of the Hongpu River, from April 1 to April 5. April 5 is the day for people to worship their dead family members, but the government announced the cemeteries will be closed to visitors and they will instead offer online grave visits or valet grave visits instead.

Jilin Province reported around 2,000 cases. It is building modular hospitals in its two most infected, cities Changchun and Jilin, as well as a few other cities. The province has built 19 modular hospitals, including eight in Changchun, ten in Jilin, and one in Huichun. Liaoning Province and Fujian Province also started building modular hospitals.
