In China, Some Cities Edge Into Covid-19 Lockdowns Ahead of Party Congress

SINGAPORE — Chinese cities tightened measures to stem the Covid-19 flare-up and threatened further damage to the country’s struggling economy ahead of a Communist Party congress to choose the country’s top leadership.

Chengdu ordered its 21 million residents to stay home from 6 p.m. local time on Thursday, according to a city government statement. Authorities will conduct citywide Covid-19 testing through Sunday, with one person in each household allowed to go out once a day to buy groceries with evidence of a negative Covid-19 test. They did not give a date when the measures would end.
