The reappearance of covid-19 cases in Fujian province, which recorded 152 new local contaminations in five days, has prompted several Chinese cities to issue travel warnings on the cusp of a major tourist season.
These recommendations come before the holiday week corresponding to the Chinese National Day, October 1, a very touristy period, and the Mid-Autumn Festival next week.
The National Health Commission said Wednesday that 50 new local infections had been identified in China on September 14, down from 59 the day before.
If all these new contaminations are located in the coastal province of Fujian, several Chinese provinces and cities across the country have advised residents to stay at home during these holiday periods or to avoid unnecessary travel outside the cities.
Wenzhou, in Zhejiang province, north of Fujian, has meanwhile decided to close indoor recreation areas for two weeks.
For Zeng Shidian, director of the Wenzhou Disease Control and Prevention Center, there is a “high” risk that the city will have cases imported from Putian and other parts of Fujian due to the movement of people and people. merchandise.
