Eleven people infected with COVID-19 died in Shanghai on April 21, the Shanghai Municipal Health Commission said on Friday.

That was up from eight deaths a day earlier.

The average age of the death patients is 84.2 and the oldest at 93. The newly reported deaths were cases with underlying conditions such as lung cancer and diabetes, city authorities said.

Shanghai reported a sharp increase in its number of seriously-ill Covid patients, raising concerns that the Chinese financial hub is likely to record more fatalities even as its worst virus outbreak appears to be coming under control.

The number of the patients in severe or critical condition in the city more than tripled to 159 as of Wednesday from just over 50 the previous day, Wu Qianyu, an official with the city’s health commission, said at a briefing Thursday.
