NHC report for yesterday:
96 new cases, 25 imported, 71 domestic (Jiangsu 35, Hunan 15, Hubei 9, Shandong 6, Yunan 3, Henan 2, Fujian 1)
27 new asymptomatic carriers, 12 imported, 15 domestic (Henan 9, Hubei 3, Hunan 3)
Note: 14 of the domestic confirmed cases were conversions from previous asymptomatic carriers
Looks like the situation in Nanjing has peaked. No more asymptomatic carriers are being discovered after 4 rounds of full population PCR test and confirmed cases are now down even with conversions from previous asymptomatic carriers included

It just goes to show that China does have a strong system where they can track these problems down and help to deal with them as effectively as possible so we do not have another Wuhan, not to mention that they did what the west cannot do even if it killed them, take this bloody situation seriously. I mean look at the USA, in the 6 digits and still trying to come up with excuses. There numbers are like 25 Wuhans, that is 25 and that isn't horrible by western standards. China is now dealing with the 96 infections as though it is a war but the USA isn't doing much about there while debating on whether to lockdown yet again.

Speaking of contract tracing in China, CGTN has come out with an interesting article on how this outbreak spread in China:

It has a really nice diagram of the tracing:

Even if mRNA vaccines was 100% reduced risk of infection compared to unvaccinated, there is still a non-zero residual risk of getting infected, however low that might be.

Even if mRNA vaccines was 100% reduced risk of infection, this level of risk reduction lasts only 7-8 months before immunity level drops off, requiring boosters to maintain same efficacy.

So I think focusing on infections is a very big mistake. Outside of short-term clinical trials on a single variant, infections shouldn't be the metric for success in a real world filled with barriers to success like vaccine hesistancy, variants, zero booster shots, and supply shortages.

China would bankrupt itself if it kept on putting out fires everywhere if it only focused on infection. You cannot eliminate infections cases forever unless China wants to be a hermetically sealed country like North Korea. China must learn to live with COVID with high vaccination rate and regular boosters or risk physical isolation and recurring economic difficulties in long-run.
