China is struggling to contain its fourth outbreak of the most infectious delta variant in the past five months. With more than 1,000 locally transmitted infections spread across 21 provinces, it is already the largest flare-up since the virus first emerged in Wuhan.
Dalian became the country’s latest hotspot, reporting 40 local cases out of 57 new infections added nationwide on Saturday.
City authorities urged people not to leave their homes to reduce transmission and stopped operations in public places deemed non-essential.
