Despite the government's continued use of a zero-tolerance policy that includes exhausting lockdowns and travel restrictions, the number of daily Covid cases in China has increased to the highest level since the pandemic started, according to official data released Thursday.

In comparison to China's enormous population of 1.4 billion people and the caseloads witnessed in Western nations at the height of the pandemic, the figures are quite moderate.

The National Health Bureau reported that the nation had 31,454 domestic cases as of Wednesday, 27,517 of which had no symptoms.

The most recent data surpass the 29,390 infections noted in mid-April, when the megacity of Shanghai was placed under lockdown and its citizens had difficulty accessing food and medical treatment. As Covid instances increase, a number of cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Chongqing, have tightened Covid regulations.


According to Beijing authorities, entry into public locations including hotels, retail centres, and government buildings now requires a negative PCR test result within 48 hours. Online courses are now offered at all of the city's schools.

A large iPhone manufacturing owned by Foxconn in central China experienced violent protests on Wednesday. Video captured the unrest showed dozens of hazmat-clad security guards racing after workers while brandishing batons.
