The list of the city’s locked-down, controlled and precautionary areas has been updated based on results of the latest screenings, Wu Qianyu, a senior official of the Shanghai Health Commission, said yesterday.

The number of residents in newly designated locked-down areas, where positive cases have been reported within the past week, has been reduced by more than 4 million.

The number of people in precautionary areas — where no positive case has been detected in the past week — has risen by more than 2 million.

“Shanghai’s pandemic-prevention situation remains difficult and complicated,” Wu said.
