BEIJING (Reuters) – The municipality of Guangzhou in south China launched a new massive screening campaign for the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19 on Wednesday as cases of contamination hit record levels.

Five counties, home to more than half of the city’s 19 million residents, have been affected by the operation, authorities said on social media.

China, which has adopted a zero-tolerance policy towards Covid, is facing a surge in infections in several major economic hubs including Beijing, Zhengzhou and Chongqing, which could prompt fresh health restrictions.

Canton on Tuesday recorded 2,637 new cases of local contamination after 2,377 reported the previous day’s strongest epidemic outbreak.
