China's daily cases of symptomatic Covid have more than tripled

Mainland China reported 1,807 new local symptomatic Covid-19 cases on Sunday. This is the highest daily figure in two years. It more than tripled the caseload of the previous day, as surging infections in a northeastern province overstretch health resources.

The number of domestically transmitted cases with confirmed symptoms reported for Saturday spiked from 476 the previous day, data from the National Health Commission showed on Sunday. The daily count included 114 people initially classified as asymptomatic who later developed symptoms.

The surge prompted health authorities to allow the public to buy rapid self-test kits for the first time to help detect infections quickly, as some experts said China's earlier strategy based on nucleic acid test - requiring medical workers to take samples - had become harder with the fast-spreading Omicron variant.
