    Restrictions are part of the Chinese strategy that became known as “covid zero”. The model imposes strict virus suppression measures to fully deter contagion in the early stages of an outbreak. The logic is to prevent the crisis from worsening. It works, but at a very high cost.

    To enact these urgent measures, it was enough for the city to register 35 new cases of covid-10 between the days and 12 of September. Other cities in Fujian province, including Quanzhou and Xiamen, have also reported cases, bringing the region’s infection count to 35.

    The outbreak, according to Chinese authorities, is caused by the Delta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. The first cases were traced and linked to students at a school in Xianyou County.
