Officials in China’s financial hub of Shanghai said that they would be uplifting the lockdown in some areas from Monday.

Shanghai has organised residential units into three categories related to risk to permit those in areas with fewer cases for a stretch of two weeks to take part in particular activities in their neighbourhoods, said city official Gu Honghui.

“Each district will disclose the specific names of the first batch (of communities) split into the three types, and three subsequent lists will be reported in a timely manner,” he further said.
