New COVID-19 cases in southeast China impact supply chains

Spike in COVID-19 cases across southeast China leads to supply chain disruption.

Following the latest COVID-19 outbreak starting on 10th September, new local COVID-19 infections have more than doubled in Fujian, a province in China's southeast. Quanzhou city and Xiamen have seen a surge in cases alongside Putian, where the first new cases were registered. 

In just four days, and ahead of the week-long National Day holiday starting on Oct. 1, more than 100 community infections have been reported in the three Fujian cities. 

Strict COVID protocols have been reintroduced in the region leading to business closures and flight cancellations in addition to road blocks affecting road freight, whilst port omissions are expected alongside shipping cancellations.
