Shanghai has relaxed lockdown conditions in six districts since Sunday, amid a decline in the financial hub’s daily local infections over the past few days.

Gu Honghui, Shanghai’s deputy secretary-general, told a Sunday press conference that residents in the districts of Jinshan, Fengxian, Chongming, Qingpu, and Songjiang can move freely inside their district, which means residents can visit grocery stores and hospitals, as well as take public transportation. The five districts are non-downtown districts that have reached zero-Covid status at the community level.
