Shanghai added 13,354 new Covid-19 infections on Tuesday, boosting the national caseload to a record since the disease’s outbreak, underscoring why authorities in China’s commercial hub are in no hurry to lift a citywide lockdown.

Authorities kept the city of 25 million residents locked down, after mass testing found 73,000 infections since March 1. The local government reversed its earlier plan to lift the lockdown on Puxi on Tuesday.

The 13,354 infections topped the previous one-day high of 9,006 on Monday, translating into more than 33 times Shanghai’s total infections before the latest round of outbreak.

The vast majority of Shanghai’s infections were asymptomatic, with 268 symptomatic cases on Monday, compared with 425 a day earlier. Still, the authorities were taking no chances with the highly transmissible Omicron variant, vowing to track down, quarantine and deal with every single case to achieve what the government calls a “dynamic zero” Covid-19 policy.
