Suzhou Limits Medical Services, Suspends Schools After Covid Cases Emerged
What’s new: The city of Suzhou in East China’s Jiangsu province has beefed up epidemic control measures, including suspending online and in-person sales of anti-fever medicine as well as part of hospitals’ outpatient and emergency medical services, after four people tested positive for Covid-19 Sunday.
Another four people tested positive since then, bringing the total number to eight cases, local authorities said at a Monday press conference. Preliminary analysis results showed the patients were infected with the highly transmissible omicron variant.
