China vows to secure daily food supply in Covid-hit city of Xi'An

The local government has taken measures to reduce prices for pork and vegetables, and wholesale grocery markets are working to ensure supplies, Wang Bin, spokesman with the Ministry of Commerce, said at the press conference.

China promised to guarantee ceaseless food supply at stable costs after an outcry over shortages of produce in the Covid hotspot of Xi’an city in Shaanxi area, authorities said at the State Council’s press interview on Saturday, while emphasizing the public government’s zero Coronavirus policy. The northwest pandemic center of Xi’an, which has been in lockdown for a long time, has attempted to convey daily necessities to its 13 million occupants. Officials on Saturday communicated certainty that they would give adequate supplies and would tackle conveyance issues after a few shopping applications quit functioning due to pandemic controls.

Hospitals in Shaanxi province have admitted 1,992 people infected with the virus. Serious cases account for 2.4% of the total, lower than the nation’s average of 7% since the second half of 2020, according to the conference.

China has ordered hospitals to accept all patients following a case in which a pregnant woman miscarried after she was refused entry to a hospital.

About 86% of China’s population has been fully vaccinated and the total number of jabs administered was 2.89 billion as of Jan. 7, according to the conference.
