Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Taipei, Taiwan – China’s COVID-19 cases are surging toward record highs, signalling more pain for the world’s second-largest economy as hopes fade for a quick exit from Beijing’s draconian “Zero-COVID” policies. The National Health Commission on Wednesday reported 29,157 infections nationwide for the previous day, close to April’s peak.

China’s daily caseload peaked at 29,411 on April 13, when Shanghai was several weeks into a punishing lock-down that prompted food shortages and rare displays of social unrest.

The rising cases come as a video circulating on social media on Wednesday appeared to show fresh worker unrest at Apple supplier Foxconn’s massive manufacturing facility in the industrial city of Zhengzhou.
