Shanghai Health Commission reported a total of 0 locally transmitted COVID-19 cases and 11 local asymptomatic cases this morning, Thursday, October 6.
The 11 new local asymptomatic cases all tested positive during central quarantine, and were in the following areas:
5 in Fengxian
2 in Pudong
1 in Baoshan
1 in Jianding
1 in Minhang
1 in Xuhui
Building & compound lockdowns...
More and more buildings and compounds are being locked down as cases pop up across the city and their close contacts traced, with some getting told they are in 2+5, and others simply being told "until further notice" (always a bit ominous...)
Venues temporarily closed...
Venues are also being temporarily closed due to potential contamination, including (but most certainly not limited to) Nomad in Found 158 and Alimentari on Anfu Lu – is nothing sacred?!
Districts across Shanghai have also begun mass testing, with some calling for three tests in three days, some two tests in two days and others two tests in three days.
Suffice to say, wherever you live – prepare to be tested.
