SHANGHAI, April 14 (Xinhua) -- The municipal health commission of Shanghai said Thursday that the city currently has nine COVID-19 cases in severe condition since the resurgence of the epidemic in March.
Eight of the severe cases are older people aged between 70 and 93, the commission said, adding that all of them had high-risk factors such as serious underlying diseases, and none of them were vaccinated against COVID-19.
