China narrows siege to Covid-19 outbreak in Beijing

Mass testing in Beijing after new COVID-19 outbreak

In Hebei, authorities will allow only essential workers to leave their homes, while one member of a household is allowed to go out once a day to shop for necessities.

Before the recent outbreak, Beijing had not reported a single locally-transmitted case in 57 days.

In a sign that the resurgence of cases in the capital is proving hard to stamp out even as officials say they've been largely contained, Hebei province's Anxin county has been sealed off and each household can assign only one person to go out for necessities daily, reported state media.

No non-residents will be allowed to enter buildings, communities, or villages.

The rest of China has seen only a small trickle of single-digit infections, most of which were imported cases, which means travellers returning from overseas.

While this is a small number compared to thousands of daily cases in India and the USA, the Chinese authorities said they reacted as quickly as possible to contain the virus spread.

Beijing also rolled out mass nucleic acid screening for the coronavirus, environment up 193 sampling booths across the town.


A similar scene was spotted in Mexico last month when Coronavirus-shaped hailstones rained down on the South American country - sparking rumours the phenomenon could be a sign from God.

Since mid-June, Beijing has reported a total of 318 COVID-19 cases.

Speaking to CNN in May possibly, China's top respiratory qualified Dr. Zhong Nanshan warned that China continue to confronted the "large obstacle" of a opportunity return of the virus, and authorities really should not be complacent.

Some 12 cases of Covid-19 were found in the county. The virus has since sickened 10 million globally and killed over half a million.

The high number of deaths has led to changes in traditional burial rites around the world, with morgues and funeral businesses overwhelmed and loved ones often barred from bidding farewell in person.

Only the seafood section of that shopping market was under observation because the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, causing Covid-19 disease, was detected on chopping boards for salmon, which led that salmon and other imported seafood products have been removed from public sale across Beijing.
