Beijing authorities have identified a new focus of COVID-19 in one of the bars in the prestigious part of the Chaoyang district

In an upscale part of Beijing’s Chaoyang District, authorities have identified a new outbreak of COVID-19 for the first time in a long time.

There are many foreigners living in the northeast of the city. In one of the local bars in the Chaoyang district, the first infected were recorded – a total of 61 people, 25 of whom were asymptomatic carriers.


After that, as specified, the Chaoyang administration again tightened the epidemic requirements. Entertainment establishments, including bars and cafes, were temporarily closed. People who were among the last visitors to the place where a new focus of infection was detected were placed in quarantine.


According to the latest data, since June 6, the authorities of the Chinese capital have identified less than ten new cases of COVID-19 daily. In addition, as noted, the local epidemic that began at the end of April again began to decline. In a number of residential complexes in Beijing, which were previously considered the most dangerous from an epidemic point of view, the authorities eased anti-COVID restrictions – the work of transport, shopping centers and restaurants was restored.


Earlier in June, China blamed the south wind for aggravating the COVID-19 epidemic. It was clarified that the authorities of the Chinese city with a population of 2.19 million people asked residents to close all windows to avoid infection. Doctors concluded that the culprit for the aggravation of the epidemiological situation this time is the wind from the DPRK.
