Lockdown in Shenzhen?

As Shenzhen prepares for the National Holiday, cases of COVID-19 have started spreading throughout the city once again.

On Wednesday, September 28, Shenzhen reported three positive cases, one of whom was not already in isolation. 

Yesterday, the number of infected people went up again; this time 15 people were found to have contracted the virus, three of whom were not in isolation.

Today, Friday, September 30, there were 27 new infections in the city, of whom nine were not in isolation.

The sudden increase in cases has led a rumor that the city’s health authorities are contemplating a city-wide lockdown to curb the spread of the virus during Golden Week.

Let's hope it stays just that, rumors.
