On Tuesday, China put hundreds of thousands more under lockdown to eradicate the exacerbating coronavirus outbreak as infections reached new highs in several US states and Europe.

COVID-19 outbreaks have wreaked havoc across the globe, with many countries in Europe and North America attempting to strike a balance between economically painful regulations and preventing the virus’s spread.

To reduce disruptions, the US cut the time spent in isolation for asymptomatic cases in half, while France mandated that staff work from home atleast three days a week.

Although the outbreak is significantly less than in other global viral hotspots, China has maintained its “zero covid” stance, issuing stay-at-home orders in many parts of Yan’an.

Hundreds of thousands of people in the area were among the 13 million people in Xi’an who were ordered to stay at home for the sixth day as China battled its highest daily case counts in 21 months.

Meanwhile, a resident of Xi’an said, “I’m about to die of starvation. There’s no food, my housing compound won’t let me out, and I’m about to run out of instant noodles. Please help!”

Many other Xi’an residents have also complained of the restrictions, which includes a ban on driving. Only one member of a family is allowed to go out for groceries.

It is considered as China’s most comprehensive lockdown since the similarly-sized city of Wuhan was cut off from the rest of the world in the early days of the pandemic.

The highly transmissible Omicron virus subtype has fueled the outbreaks in numerous nations, wreaking havoc on susceptible industries like travel.

Since Friday, more than 11,500 flights have been cancelled throughout the world, with tens of thousands more delayed during one of the busiest travel periods of the year.

Many airlines have claimed a staff shortage due to a spike in Omicron- a new variant of COVID-19 cases.
