The total number of COVID cases in the country as of May 27 stands at 906,639, whereas full recoveries are 890,311. The death toll is still at 2,302.

Shanghai took few steps on Friday towards lifting its COVID lockdown while Beijing has been investigating cases where its severe curbs impacted many other medical treatments as China persists in its uneven exit from restrictions.

The capital and the financial hub have been the major cities, with a strict lockdown of two months to control the coronavirus spike in Shanghai and severe movement restrictions to suppress a small but stubborn spread of the virus in Beijing.

The curbs have thrashed the second biggest economy globally, although most nations have been striving to come back to something like normal.

The economy of China is also coming back to its feel. Still, reports show only a partial and grinding recovery, with several businesses from retailers to chipmakers alerting of slow sales as customers in the nation slam the brakes on spending.

School going children of Shanghai will slowly resume offline classes in June and routine COVID-19 tests, the local government said on Thursday, May 26, as the Chinese metropolis slowly comes back from a prolonged lockdown that brought it to a standstill.

The nation has been battling with its worst coronavirus outbreak since the beginning of the pandemic, with the epicentre, Shanghai barring its 25 million population from going out of their homes for weeks.

Some restrictions of the city have been eased recently as cases decline, although much of the population is still not permitted to go outside for more than a few hours per day.
