Shanghai Prepares to Partially Reopen Starting Sunday
Shanghai is removing metal barriers around the city used to seal off streets and entrances to residential buildings as the largest city in China eases pandemic restrictions after Covid-related lockdowns lasting more than a month and a half.
Public transportation will resume Sunday, starting with four of the city’s 20 subway lines and 273 bus routes, basically covering all of the major districts, airports, train stations and hospitals in the city, an official said Thursday at a press conference. The government is studying plans to allow private vehicles and taxis back on road, the official said.
