The count of confirmed cases in a new COVID-19 outbreak in China’s far west has risen to 17.
The Nationwide Health Commission stated Saturday that 16 extra cases have been identified within the earlier 24 hours within the Xinjiang area, on top of a first case.

The outbreak within the metropolis of Urumqi is the most recent to pop up since China largely contained the home unfold of the virus in March. The biggest was a current outbreak in Beijing that manifested greater than 330 people.
Authorities in Urumqi have decreased subways, buses and taxis and closed off some residential communities, in accordance with Chinese media reports. In addition they positioned restrictions on people leaving town, together with a suspension of subway service to the airport.
China has been accused of human rights abuses in Xinjiang, the homeland of the largely Muslim Uighur ethnic group. The area has long been blanketed with excessive security, which China says is critical to forestall terrorist exercise.
