Beijing districts initiate mass testing as cases rise

Various districts in Beijing launched general COVID-19 testing for key groups, as the Chinese capital registered 49 transmittable coronavirus cases since mid-January. The only district to have so far completed the testing process is the area of Fengtai.

For the time being, several districts, including Chaoyang, Daxing and Fangshan, have commenced with sampling key groups, primarily including residents working in the construction, cold-chain and delivery industries.

Beijing authorities also demanded undergoing a COVID-19 test from residents who in the past 14 days purchased medication pertaining to fever, anti-infection and cough. It was also underlined that those who do not submit to testing will have their health codes modified and thus may experience restrictions to their regular activities.
