Shanghai to ease COVID restrictions from June 1

Shanghai will begin reducing COVID-19 lockdown restrictions starting June 1 amid a steady decrease in registered infections, the city's vice-mayor Zong Ming stated at a press conference on Monday.

Zong noted that the city leadership "will switch to a normal virus control mode," after which everyday life and production "will return fully to normality." He also noted that certain shopping centers and restaurants that have been free of collective infections during the past 14 days will be allowed to reopen starting Monday.

On May 8, the Russian TASS News, citing familiar sources, reported that Shanghai's health authorities had decided to ease the coronavirus containment measures in the peripheral parts of the city, aiming to eradicate the virus by mid-May.
