Shanghai Health Commission reported a total of 1 locally transmitted COVID-19 case and 6 local asymptomatic cases this morning, Friday, November 4.

Of the 7 new cases reported, 6 tested positive in central quarantine, while 1 tested positive during regular screening.

No prizes for telling us which supermarket the community case had been to...

1 new community case...

The new community case, a 27-year-old female, lives at 895 Jinshajiang Lu in Changfeng Community Subdistrict of Putuo District.

Her accommodation has been designated as a medium-risk area and put under lockdown.

The case herself has been moved to a designated hospital, and is reported to have mild symptoms.

Aside from her accommodation, she had – as we all by now know – been to the Aldi supermarket below Cages at 428 Jiangning Lu in Jing'an District, as well as a 7-11 convenience store at 295 Ruining Lu in Xuhui District.

Mass screening in Putuo...

Putuo District announced an additional round of mass PCR screening last night. You can connect the dots.

Aldi update...

It seems the text message telling people they were to receive a 3+4 stretch – three days home quarantine and four days self-health monitoring – turns out to be just about the only thing that is not happening.

We're hearing it is 2+5 for some (including whole buildings), seven days home quarantine for others, and off to the quarantine hotel for the unluckiest of souls.

A number of schools, office buildings and venues have also been ordered to close, including can't-seem-to-catch-a-break Cages Jing'an, for the umpteenth time this year.

(The uncoveted 'Most Temporary Closures' award at the 2022 That's Shanghai F&B Awards looks to be in the bag)

On a more positive note, people who received a message saying they *might* have been to Aldi – none of whom, as far as we could ascertain, had  seem to be able to go about their usual business as long as they get a PCR test done every day for three consecutive days.

Shanghai Disney update...

Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to central quarantine Shanghai Disney workers go. Thousands of them, by all accounts.

Suffice to say, it looks unlikely The Happiest Place on Earth will be reopening for another week... at least.
