Provinces across China have imposed tougher restrictions in an effort to racing to contain the country’s worst coronavirus outbreak in months, with health

Authorities reported 328 symptomatic infections in July – almost equal to the total number of local cases from February to June.“The main strain circulating at present is the Delta variant which poses an even greater challenge to virus prevention and control work,” Mi Feng, spokesman for the National Health Commission (NHC), said at a news briefing on Saturday.
