The first, a resident of Xiamen City in Fujian Province, traveled from Xiamen to Beijing on November 12 and arrived in Shanghai on November 15. The second and third are Shanghai residents who live in Pudong New Area and Qingpu District respectively.

The three cases are friends, and are all females in their 30s who had been fully vaccinated. They were detected when one of the three showed symptoms and went to a fever clinic.

Three residential complexes – Xiangmei Garden complex on Jinxiu Lu in Pudong, Xiangzhangyuan complex on Haiyang Lu in Pudong, and Xijiao Jinlu complex on Yewen Lu in Qingpu – have been classified as medium-risk areas.

The complexes are now under lockdown, and shelves and tents have been put up for delivery packages and nucleic acid tests.
