The Heat

China has made extraordinary progress in battling COVID-19 since the first major outbreak in Wuhan earlier this year.

While the disease is largely contained in China, the country is now responding to a minor outbreak in the city of Qingdao in east China’s Shandong Province. About nine million residents are being tested after a small number of positive cases were linked to a local hospital.

Meanwhile there’s good news for China’s economy with new figures from the IMF projecting growth for 2020.
