BEIJING, November 28. /TASS/. China’s National Health Commission and the National Administration of Disease Control and Prevention have dispatched working groups to supervise the implementation of local anti-coronavirus measures, the Global Times reported on Monday.
According to the newspaper, the groups will be tasked to correct local one-size-fits-all approaches to fighting the spread of COVID-19 and prevent extremes from taking place.
The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention underscored that a universal approach should not be used nationwide, and no additional restrictions should be imposed in low-risk areas.
On Sunday, the South China Morning Post reported that protests against China’s relentless pandemic controls had flared in a number of major Chinese cities. A recent deadly fire in Xinjiang was among the reasons behind the unrest. The residents of a building were quarantined amid a COVID-19 outbreak there. The fire killed 10 people and another nine were injured.
