Residents wearing face masks walk by a masked security watch over a barricaded Galaxy Soho commercial office building locked down for health monitoring following a COVID-19 case detected in the area Tuesday in Beijing. China has sent more than 10,000 health workers from across the country to Shanghai, including 2,000 military medical staff.

The COVID-19 outbreak in China’s largest metropolis of Shanghai remains “extremely grim” amid an ongoing lockdown confining around 26 million people to their homes, a city official said Tuesday.
