1 new community case...
The new community case, a 43-year-old male, lives on Lane 106, Laiyin Lu, Jiuliting Jiadao, Songjiang District.
In addition to his place of residence, he had visited:
76 Laiyin Lu, Songjiang District
358 Kangding Lu, Jing'an District (Ruh roh, that's Shangkang Li)
Shanghai Exhibition Center, 1000 Yan'an Zhong Lu, Jing'an District
5588 Sanlu Lu, Minhang District

Yup, he got around. Seems a cool guy.
That Shangkang Li pit stop has surely set a few hearts a'fluttering though, and not in a good way.
That said *hopefully, hopefully – fingers and toes crossed all round* given the updated China COVID policies (see below) – and the 'no more secondary contacts' part in particular – this gentleman's admirably active life should not be causing quite the same red code and quarantine havoc as it would have this time yesterday.
