Delta variant coronavirus continues to spread in southeast China’s Fujian province. Authorities said today that 50 more infections have been detected in the province. This brings to 152 the number of infected people since the outbreak of the delta variant last Friday. A lockdown had been ordered in two major cities in the province, Putian and Xiamen, as a result.

The Chinese government is pursuing a “zero covid strategy.” With curfews, mass testing, contact tracing, quarantine and strict entry restrictions, the country has the coronavirus largely under control. Recently, however, there had been a cluster of local outbreaks of the delta variant despite strict measures.

The current outbreak originated in Putian. It was suspected that a family man had brought in the virus after returning from Singapore. The man had traveled back to China on Aug. 4, spent 21 days in quarantine and had tested negative for the virus nine times. Last Friday, however, a test then turned out positive.
