Mainland China reports first local Covid-19 infections in almost 2 months”

All of the new cases were closely associated with the Qingdao Chest Hospital, which is designated for treating imported cases.

In opposition to economically painful lockdowns and social distancing, there have been proposals in some countries to let the coronavirus circulate in the population to build up "herd immunity" - where so much of the population has been infected there are insufficient new victims for the virus to jump to.

China has paraded its rapid testing capacities during previous minor outbreaks and the ruling Communist Party is desperate to show its ability to manage the pandemic to its citizens - as well as to foreign audiences - after it emerged in the central city of Wuhan late a year ago.

According to "Sky News Arabia", the Chinese National Health Commission said that at least 6 new cases were discovered in Qingdao, during the past 24 hours; It was not immediately clear what caused the discrepancy.

Buildings housing infected individuals have also been locked down as part of the city's virus containment measures.

Its strategy has involved tracking down contacts of those who test positive, and telling them to isolate.

The cluster in Qingdao, a city on the eastern coast home to numerous beaches and popular with tourists, will raise fears of a potential spike in cases related to the holiday.

This has led to five districts being tested in three days, and the rest of the city in the remaining two.

As of Saturday, the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases on the Chinese mainland had reached 85,557, including the 218 patients still being treated.
