Meanwhile, Shenzhen officials were quoted by mainland media as saying that the city has basically returned to “dynamic zero” infections after three rounds of mass-testings.

The epidemic situation in Shenzhen is generally manageable, they said.

The city’s public transport services have largely returned to normal on Monday, though trains and buses will skip areas where lockdowns are still taking place.
