A surge in Omicron cases has gone up rapidly in China causing authorities to lock down residents, close factories, and stop truck traffic. Cases rose on Tuesday to more than 5,000 infections that day alone. Trucks are being delayed because drivers need to get tested and products like Toyota and Volkswagen cars, Apple iPhones as well. “Recently, local clustered epidemics have occurred in many places in our country, mainly of the Omicron variant, which has spread quickly and is very hidden,” Mi Feng, a spokesman for the National Health and Health Commission, said on Tuesday. “The epidemic prevention and control is more difficult, and the situation is severe and complicated.” No one knows if we will have to go back to lockdown after the mask mandate has just been lifted.
