Witnessing a steep jump in total infections, China recorded 3,290 new Covid-19 cases on Wednesday, including 11 severe cases, reported India Today.

China, where the first virus case emerged in Wuhan in late 2019, has not officially reported any Covid-related deaths for more than a year, news agency AFP reported.

Meanwhile, in a bid to contain the virus spread, China decided to free up hospital beds as officials on Wednesday reported thousands of new cases from an Omicron-led coronavirus outbreak.

Also, China’s Jilin province was “in a last ditch battle” against Covid-19, a senior Communist Party official said, as the northeastern region bordering North Korea and Russia accounted for three-quarters of China’s total new cases on Wednesday.

The sudden spike in Covid cases has put around 17.5 million residents of the southern tech hub of Shenzhen under lockdown. Moreover, restrictions have been imposed on Shanghai and other cities.

The restrictions come at a time when the global economy is under pressure from Russia’s war on Ukraine, surging oil prices and weak consumer demand.
