China is unlikely to see a major Covid outbreak anytime soon, a disease control official said, amid a heightened focus on the risk of reinfection and a possible spike in cases during the Labor Day holiday.
There has been a slight uptick in Covid cases in some areas, said He Qinghua, an official with the National Administration of Disease Prevention and Control, at a press briefing Wednesday.
