Shanghai to downgrade its emergency alert level

Shanghai will lower its coronavirus emergency response level once again on Saturday after more than two months without a new confirmed local infection.
The city raised its highest public health emergency alert level back on January 24 as the severity of the Covid-19 outbreak became clear nationwide. It then downgraded the alert to Level 2 on March 24.
Under the new reduced alert level, residents will still be encouraged to wear masks when entering enclosed areas and coming into close proximity with others, as well as on public transportation and inside places like hospitals and schools where they are required.
The elderly are especially advised to continue wearing masks.
Meanwhile, the city will continue to strictly manage inbound visitors and maintain health and safety checkpoints.
While Shanghai hasnt reported a single new local coronavirus case since March 3. It has been dealing with an influx of imported virus cases over the last two months.
The city has reported a total of 318 confirmed imported cases though the number of new imported cases has dwindled to only a few a week recently with flights to Shanghai extremely limited and foreigners banned from entering China.
