China struggles with COVID, east export hub in lockdown

China's major manufacturing export hub Yiwu, located in the eastern part of the country, entered a 3-day COVID-related lockdown, the regional authorities announced on Thursday. The officials noted that the measure was imposed in order to fight the latest pandemic outbreak.

In addition, earlier this week the city of Sanya imposed a sudden lockdown, leaving countless tourists stranded, as the local government advised them not to leave the island the city is located on. From August 1 to 10, the city recorded 1,690 symptomatic and 1,504 asymptomatic cases of the virus.

Meanwhile, both Shanghai and Shenzhen reported no new cases today, local authorities shared.
