On Tuesday, the Chinese municipality of Tianjin reported fewer COVID-19 cases as the outbreak began to ease, but the daily case count in the city of Anyang reached a new high.

The news: The National Health Commission (NHC) reported 18 domestically transmitted cases with proven symptoms in Tianjin, a vital port in northern China. This is the lowest daily total in almost a week.

  • The likelihood of the Tianjin outbreak spreading to other locations was progressively diminishing on Saturday, according to NHC official He Qinghua, as new cases in the preceding three days were mostly in persons who had been confined.
  • Due to the outbreak, Volkswagen and Toyota assembly factories in Tianjin remained shuttered. According to a statement released by Volkswagen Group China on Tuesday, some shifts at the city’s component facility have restarted since Thursday last week.
  • Over 300 local symptomatic cases have been identified in Tianjin as a result of the present cluster, which has also transmitted Omicron illnesses to two other cities.

What’s going on: Although the number of cases in Tianjin is lower than in many other outbreaks around the world, the city has made it more difficult for residents to leave, sealed off high-risk areas, and conducted multiple rounds of testing among its 14 million residents, all in accordance with China’s policy of containing any outbreak as quickly as possible.

  • Beijing, which will host the Winter Olympics beginning February 4, has reported one local case with definite symptoms for Monday. The infected person was a close friend of a local Omicron case that was disclosed on Jan. 15.
  • The city of Anyang, which discovered Omicron in an epidemic linked to a passenger travelling from Tianjin, recorded 94 local symptomatic cases on Monday, the highest daily figure since January 8.
  • Over the weekend, Anyang tightened its restrictions, ordering residents not to leave their homes or villages at will.

Facts and figures: On Monday, China reported 127 local cases with definite symptoms, down from 163 the day before.

  • There were no new deaths on Monday, bringing the total number of deaths to 4,636.
  • Mainland China had 105,258 confirmed symptomatic cases as of January 17, including both domestic and imported cases.
