Authorities in Shanghai tighten COVID-19 measures

Authorities in Shanghai have tightened coronavirus disease (COVID-19)-related measures from Tuesday, October 13, for those entering the city from Chinese regions deemed "medium-risk". At present, only the Loushanhou community in Qingdao (Shangdong province) has been declared "medium-risk", following the detection of a number of new COVID-19 cases at a local hospital in recent days. All those arriving from Loushanhou from Tuesday will be required to undergo a 14-day quarantine, while those that arrived between September 30 and October 12 must take a nucleic acid test.To get more news about shanghai coronavirus cases , you can visit shine news official website.

Foreign nationals with residence permits have been allowed to re-enter the country from September 28 as the country has eased certain restrictions. Foreign nationals who have valid Chinese residence permits to work, visit family, or for personal matters will be allowed to return to the country. Additionally, foreign nationals possessing residence permits that expired after March 28 will be allowed to reapply for a visa to re-enter China.

Previously, Chinese authorities had already allowed citizens from 36 European and 13 Asian countries to enter the country, provided they have a valid Chinese residence permit. China's borders had been closed to European citizens for four-and-a-half months. The move was an effort to revive the Chinese economy by encouraging foreign specialist workers to return. Residence permit-holders can apply for visas free of charge at their nearest Chinese embassy or consulate. All arrivals into China must provide a negative COVID-19 test, which is to be taken within five days prior to boarding.

As of October 13, there have been 90,830 reported cases of COVID-19 in China with 4739 associated fatalities. Further international spread of the virus is to be expected in the near term.The first case of COVID-19 was reported on December 31 and the source of the outbreak has been linked to a wet market in Wuhan. Since then, human-to-human transmission of the virus has been confirmed.

Cases of the virus have been confirmed in numerous countries and territories worldwide. On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the global outbreak a pandemic. Virus-screening and quarantining measures are being implemented at airports worldwide, as well as extensive travel restrictions.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, and tiredness. Some patients may experience other symptoms such as body pains, nasal congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, sore throat, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, or a rash on the skin or discoloration of fingers or toes. These symptoms (in most cases mild) appear gradually. Generally, most patients (around 80 percent) recover from the disease without being hospitalized.
