Virus contained in Fujian; Heilongjiang outbreak in critical phase
The domestic outbreak in Fujian province in East China has been effectively brought under control, but the novel coronavirus situation in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang is in a critical phase, a health official said on Wednesday.
"Virus control measures should be stepped up further to cut its spread," Mi Feng, a spokesman from the National Health Commission, said during a briefing.
He added that as of Tuesday, China had administered more than 2.2 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines. More than 1.04 billion people had been fully vaccinated.
