Chengdu Exits Lockdown as Authorities Relaxing Covid-19 Curb

The city of Chengdu has exited a full Covid-19 lockdown in all districts, while some restrictions remain in effect to keep the virus outbreak at bay.

As a capital city of Sichuan province, China, Chengdu entered a citywide lockdown on September 1 after several Covid-19 cases were detected in some districts. The city is the latest metropolis with a large economy to go into a lockdown since Shanghai in April and May.

The Chinese authorities stated that there will no longer be limitations on how frequent residents can go outside except in some areas that are still fighting with infections in the community.

However, some public spaces such as schools, KTV lounges, internet cafes, gyms, swimming pools, museums and libraries remain closed for the time being.
