After a rise in positive Covid cases, “closed loop” management has now been imposed in the Zhenhai district of Ningbo.
The partial lockdown has resulted in concern mounting around possible supply chain disruptions, such as further bottlenecks, rising demand and rising rates. At this point in time, however, there has been no impact.
With its zero-tolerance Covid-19 policy, shutdowns are imposed in China whenever new cases appear. In August, several Ningbo ports were closed due to infections among port workers. Nevertheless, with a quick response in place and the ability to control the local region, it is hoped there will be a quick recovery.
