Shijiazhuang, China's new hotspot of COVID-19 surge

Bulgaria New Coronavirus Outbreak Reported in China

Bulgaria New Coronavirus Outbreak Reported in China

On Wednesday, the government of northeasten Heilongjiang - with a population of 37.5 million people - declared an "emergency state", telling residents not to leave the province unless absolutely necessary, and to cancel conferences and gatherings.

The number of new cases in mainland China reported on Tuesday nearly halved from a day earlier and remained a small fraction of those seen at the height of the outbreak in early 2020.

The spike in new cases comes as a World Health Organization team of investigators probing the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic are set to arrive in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, where the disease first emerged in late 2019, on Thursday.

North China's Hebei Province reported a total of 326 locally transmitted confirmed COVID-19 cases and 234 asymptomatic cases from January 2 to 10 a.m. Tuesday, Vice Governor Xu Jianpei said on Tuesday.

But Hebei province in northern China has reported 560 new cases in recent weeks - 234 of which are asymptomatic - sparking a raft of new lockdowns and restrictions.

"We have to be careful as we're near Guan, where COVID cases were reported today", said a volunteer security officer surnamed Wang, referring to a Hebei province county bordering Beijing.

At a highway checkpoint, police in protective gowns ordered a auto entering Beijing to return to Hebei after the driver was unable to show proof of a negative coronavirus test. Many provinces have issued notices urging workers to stay put for the festival.

Millions of people were lining up on Wednesday in subzero temperatures to receive a second round of coronavirus tests in a city south of Beijing as China has recorded the biggest daily jump in coronavirus cases in more than five months.

Shijiazhuang, the provincial capital of North China's Hebei Province has become China's new hotspot of Coronavirus surge. The province has shut off certain sections of highways and is ordering vehicles registered to Shijiazhuang to turn back.

The province reported a total of 90 new cases on Tuesday, and Shijiazhuang, the capital city of the province reported 84 cases and Xingtai reported six cases.

China's Ministry of Transport has called on local authorities to strengthen control over passenger traffic plying in and out of areas designated medium- and high-risk for COVID-19 to curb the latest resurgence in cases.

Most of the cases in Heilongjiang have been found in Wangkui county, under Suihua's jurisdiction, which had already been put into a lockdown earlier this week.

The number of new asymptomatic cases, which China does not classify as confirmed cases, fell to 38 from 81 cases a day earlier, while 556 asymptomatic patients remain under medical observation.
