Covid flare-up puts Shanghai back into lockdown

A Covid-19 flare-up in Shanghai, just eight days after emerging from a two-month lockdown, has returned the port city to square one. Residents in 14 of Shanghai’s 16 districts have been ordered to test for Covid over the weekend, after eleven cases were detected  on 9 June. Residents will be confined for two days and testing is expected to take twelve days.

Linerlytica analyst Tan Hua Joo stated that the situation may not be that serious. “Clearly, it’s a setback, but the impact was mitigated in the last round as cargoes were able to divert to Ningbo port.”

A spokesperson for Ocean Network Express (ONE) told Container News that the company is not restricting the acceptance of container shipments to and from Shanghai. Even as many countries are now treating Covid-19 as endemic, China is maintaining a zero-Covid-19 stance.
