China has already completed the testing over 4 million residents in Kashgar, Xinjiang for the coronavirus.
This decision to test the residents came after a young girl working in a garment factory in the city was reportedly tested positive late last week.
In another media report, it was stated that around 137 more people tested positive early this week.
Notably, all the new cases are linked to another garment unit in the city, where the young girl’s parents worked – gradually it seems to have spread to other workers too.
Though it’s not yet clear how the young girl got infected at the first place, the Government is expected look into the matter.
The new cases in the city of Kashgar are already been talked as the largest flare-up seen in the country since April 2020.
What’s notable is that over 2.84 million people were tested in just 2 days. The entire testing process got completed yesterday – yet again reflecting China’s ability to test the whole city in a short time.
Reportedly, authorities in Wuhan had said on 25 May, after some new cases came up, that it had tested 9 million people in just 10 days.
