China has 86,661 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 4,634 deaths as of December 9, 2020. The majority of cases and deaths have been in Hubei province, the original epicentre of the outbreak. Criticized for its initial inaction, the government moved to impose strict measures, including city-and province-wide lockdowns for hard-hit regions, community quarantines, school and business closures, and as the global pandemic worsens, a travel ban on foreign nationals. In recent weeks, as the number of new cases has levelled off, some measures have been lifted.
