A leaked WeChat audio from Shanghai says that there were 3000 new infections in just one day, which prompted the government to force-close most of the businesses.
Here is the transcript

How serious is it in Shanghai? ! My store was shut down by the government this morning.
The market street (a local grid officer) told me this, please listen up:
There was an explosive surge in the number of infected cases yesterday. There were over 3000 new cases (of infections) in Shanghai. But they will not publish this number.
The market street (officer) is my friend. We will be notified of the business re-opening date.
Please be careful, my buddies in this group.
He said there were three thousand more cases all of a sudden. But this number will not be published.
As long as you know what is going on. Please try to take off from work and stay home to be safe.
All businesses were closed except for supermarkets, restaurants, medical facilities, and pharmacies.
Businesses like realtors office and pet stores were all closed.
The government orders you to shut doors to avoid having people coming in.
So I hope all residents will stay home safely. Do not go outside.
