The Chinese authorities noted a record maximum number of people infected with the coronavirus infection in a day. The number of patients was approximately 31,700 cases. This became known from the notification of the State Committee on Hygiene and Health Protection of the People's Republic of China.
87% of those registered for the past day are carriers of the virus, who do not have symptoms of the disease. On November 23, one more person died of COVID-19 in China. A total of 5,232 people died from the coronavirus in the country.

The Chinese authorities have a "zero tolerance" policy towards COVID-19. In the spring of 2022, a lockdown was announced in Shanghai. Residents of the city could not leave their homes for several weeks.
