Shanghai Covid-19 cases top 13,000 as city extends lockdown


Rather than emerging from a two-stage lockdown on Tuesday as planned, most of Shanghai’s 25 million residents remained confined to their homes as the city’s daily Covid-19 cases continued to rise.

Shanghai reported more than 13,000 new local infections on Tuesday, more than triple the number reported nine days ago, when it announced it would shut down half the city at once for four days. The part of the city locked in the first phase was due out on Friday. The second stage was due to end at 3 a.m. on Tuesday.
