China’s Anhui put a second county under lockdown this week after a surge in Covid-19 cases stoked fears of a widespread breakout in the eastern province.

A county-wide lockdown was imposed in Lingbi in northeastern Anhui from 4 p.m. Friday, the local government said in a statement. All residents must stay indoors unless they attend Covid testing at designated locations, it said.
