A new sickness wave is hitting China.
At the same time, reports of people getting re-infected with COVID-19 for a third time are on the rise. With a week-long holiday kicking off across the nation, experts fear travel could drive infections.
Since September, hospital outpatient clinics across China have been full of pneumonia patients.
Chinese media outlets say the illness is spreading and just after school started in September reports noted another small peak showing an increase of more than 50 percent.
