Shanghai continues strict Covid-19 measures despite falling cases

HONG KONG — Shanghai health authorities unveiled an aggressive new Covid-19 containment plan despite continued reductions in new cases, indicating that China’s financial capital is still far from declaring victory over the country’s worst outbreak since the start of the pandemic.

According to a nine-point action plan announced just before midnight Thursday, Shanghai will add more hospital beds in quarantine and transfer all Covid-19-positive patients as well as their close contacts to quarantine centers. The plan encouraged both Covid-19 patients and close contacts to be treated with traditional Chinese medicine, without specifying other treatments.
