China Locks Down a Steel Hub For Three Days on One Covid Case

A city in one of China’s steel hubs is being shut down for three days after a single Covid-19 infection was found there. 

Wugang in Henan Province announced a citywide lockdown starting July 11, making it the latest Chinese city to enact strict mobility curbs amid the country’s ongoing Covid flareup. The city of about 300,000, home to Wuyang Iron & Steel Co., is requiring all residents to stay at home unless they’re getting tested for Covid, according to a local government statement Monday.
