China has enforced a strict Zero-covid policy for the past two years since the pandemic emerged in Wuhan. Recently, the country is again facing a surge of positive cases in Shanghai, a key commercial and financial hub as well as home to the world’s largest container port. Shanghai authorities began a snap lockdown of the city’s 26 million residents at the end of March after a mass testing found "large-scale" COVID-19 infections. According to experts, if Shanghai cannot resume production by May, all of the tech and industrial players who have supply chains in the area will come to a complete halt, especially the automotive industry, posing severe consequences and massive losses for both Asia’s biggest economy and the global supply chain.
