China is powering ahead in bringing business and life back on track, with regular COVID-19 control measures in place. The following are the latest facts and figures for the past week:

-- An air-freight route officially opened on Oct. 26 between south China's metropolis of Shenzhen and Frankfurt in Germany.

Using a Boeing 777 freighter, three flights are scheduled to operate every week. With Frankfurt's transit advantage, the cargo-flight route will help Shenzhen connect with more than 200 European cities.

-- Authorities in the city of Qingdao decided to downgrade the Loushanhou Community, where clusters of COVID-19 infections were discovered between late September and mid-October, from a medium-risk region to low-risk for COVID-19 on Oct. 26.

The community had seen no new confirmed locally-transmitted COVID-19 cases for 14 consecutive days, which met the criteria to lower its response level.

-- The city of Nanjing in east China's Jiangsu Province on Oct. 27 launched its first direct flight route to Lhasa of Tibet Autonomous Region in southwest China.

The first flight took off from Nanjing Lukou International Airport at around 10 a.m. on Oct. 27 for Lhasa.

-- Shenzhen has 11 metro lines in operation with a total length of 411 km, after a new line and new sections of three existing lines started services on Oct. 28.

The first stage of Metro Line 8 started initial operation in the city on Oct. 28. Meanwhile, the third stage of Line 2, Line 3, and Line 4 also began operations.

-- The 3rd G60 Yangtze River Delta Sci-tech Innovation Valley Talent Summit concluded on Oct. 29 in Hefei, capital of east China's Anhui Province.

Themed "Talents Integration Brings about High Quality Development," the two-day summit was aimed at promoting talent integration in the Yangtze River Delta region, which is one of the country's most economically active areas. Enditem
