News of the Week: Shanghai COVID-19 Restrictions 

Shanghai has tightened pandemic restrictions again after a brief easing, disappointing residents who had hoped that a more than month long lockdown would be lifted as the number of new cases in China's financial metropolis fell.

According to The Paper, an online media outlet, service was terminated on the last two subway lines that were still operational on Tuesday, marking the first time the city's whole system had been shut down.

Teams in white protective suits have begun entering the homes of coronavirus-infected people to spray disinfectant, raising concerns about damage to clothing and valuables, as well as leaving their keys with a community volunteer when they are taken to quarantine — a new requirement so disinfectant workers can get their hands on them.

People have been instructed to return to their homes for a "silent period" in some locations after being allowed out for restricted shopping in previous weeks.As many other countries remove restrictions and try to live with the virus, China's commitment to a "zero-COVID" strategy is exacting a significant economic and personal cost. Because the omicron variety spreads so easily, even more drastic measures have been required to contain outbreaks. With a key party meeting coming up this fall, China's ruling Communist Party is showing no signs of backing down.
