Shanghai, Tianjin Order New Round of Mass Covid-19 Tests

HONG KONG — Two of China’s biggest cities this week ordered residents to undergo mass testing for Covid-19, highlighting the risk new outbreaks could trigger new and economically costly lockdowns.

Authorities in Tianjin, a northeastern metropolis of more than 13 million people, ordered citywide tests on residents to check for coronavirus infections starting Monday evening after reporting two new cases earlier in the day. These were the first locally transmitted infections detected in the home of north China’s largest port and key sea gateway to Beijing in more than a week.
