China has had the biggest daily jump in COVID cases in more than 5 months

Three Chinese cities are in near full lockdown, testing has ramped higher and other restrictive measures have been put in place.

National Health Commission reported:
  • 115 new confirmed cases on the mainland (55 the previous day)
  • 107 are local infections
  • Most of the newly reported cases are near Beijing (Hebei province with 90), some are in northeastern Heilongjiang┬áprovince
Hebei has put the cities of Shijiazhuang, Xingtai and Langfang into lockdown.
The actions in China will likely drive new numbers lower ahead.
