Sanya clears all high-risk areas...

Sanya has gone five consecutive days with no new cases, and all high-risk areas in the city have now been cleared.

Since August 1, a total of 6,594 locally transmitted COVID-19 cases and 9,057 local asymptomatic cases have been reported in the popular tourist destination, leading to citywide 'static management' (read: lockdown) being imposed on the city on August 6, when as many as 80,000 tourists suddenly found themselves stranded.
