Shanghai's epidemic control has approached the light at the end of the tunnel as the mega-city has detected the lowest daily tally since March 24, and at least eight districts have basically cleared the coronavirus at the community level.

Xuhui was the latest to reach the standard of "basically zero community transmission," becoming the second downtown district after Putuo to achieve the primary goal in Shanghai's fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Apart from Xuhui and Putuo, the suburban districts of Fengxian, Jinshan, Chongming, Qingpu, Jiading and Songjiang plus several subdistricts and towns in the Pudong New Area have reached the standard of "basically zero community transmission" .

Shanghai recorded 228 confirmed cases and 1,259 asymptomatic cases on Tuesday, the lowest tally since March 24. All the cases were found among quarantined groups, the Shanghai municipal health commission said on Wednesday.

Xuhui district became the latest to achieve dynamic zero-COVID at the community level, making districts that had seen zero cases in non-controlled regions to eight, local health commission said.

Research by the Ruijin hospital affiliated to the School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University predicted that by conservative estimates, Shanghai's fight against the epidemic at the community level may last until June 8, when the daily new cases would fall below 1,000.
