Shanghai, which reported just 16 COVID-19 cases for Wednesday, will conduct mass testing drives every weekend until the end of July in the latest display of the lengths authorities are going to in order to adhere to the nation’s zero tolerance approach to the virus.

A temporary lockdown will also be imposed on residential complexes where a COVID-19 case is detected in the week leading up to the weekend testing, Zhao Dandan, an official with the Shanghai Municipal Health Commission said at a briefing Wednesday. The lockdown will be lifted once everyone in the compound has been tested, he said.
