China’s southern city of Guangzhou reported 1,325 local Covid-19 cases for Saturday, compared with 746 a day earlier. Officials warned of risks of community spread in some areas of the factory hub.

The Guangdong provincial government said at a briefing on Sunday that most new infections were found in the Haizhu district of the provincial capital. Some residents in middle- and high-risk areas for Covid had violated movement restrictions, causing the virus to spread to nearly districts, officials said.

Earlier, residents in Haizhu district were asked to stay home until Monday evening, unless they need a PCR test or emergency medical treatment. Public transport will be suspended during this time.

A total of 4,279 new locally transmitted Covid cases were reported across the country on Saturday, an increase from 3,526 a day earlier. China health officials reiterated at a briefing that they would adhere to their Covid Zero policy, as the country faces increasingly serious outbreaks.
