Beijing to lift lockdown in 12 communities near Xinfadi - report

Authorities in Beijing plan to lift closed-off management in 12 residential communities near the Xinfadi wholesale market after the city on Wednesday confirmed 3 additional coronavirus cases, the lowest number seen in 19 days, China's Global Times news agency reported.

The decision comes after restrictions have already been removed from 5 neighborhoods on Tuesday.

Back in May, new infection clusters were confirmed in markets in Beijing, all linked to Xinfadi, prompting the city officials to lock down districts with worries over a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic hitting the nation.
