China resists the Delta dynasty

The Chinese government is facing the country’s largest outbreak of the emerging coronavirus, due to the spread of the highly contagious Delta strain.

This situation also prompted some regions to restrict the movement of arrivals from the northeastern city of Dalian, due to the increase in the rate of infections at a faster pace than anywhere else in the country last week.

Wu Liangyu, an official with the National Health Commission, said Dalian is grappling with the virus.
Since the first infection was announced in Dalian on November 4, the city of 7.5 million people has recorded approximately 24 locally transmitted infections per day, on average, more than any other Chinese city.

Statistics based on official data also revealed that China recorded 1,308 confirmed infections that were transmitted locally on the mainland during the period between October 17 and November 14.

This number exceeds the number of injuries caused by the spread of the Delta strain during the summer, which reached 1280.

This is the most widespread outbreak of the strain in China, affecting 21 provinces, regions and municipalities.

Twelve district-level regions experienced their own outbreaks within weeks, as a result of the rapid implementation of a comprehensive set of restrictions.

The restrictions included the close tracing of contacts, the closure of recreational and cultural venues, and restrictions on tourism and public transportation.
