China CDC: New type of COVID-19 spreading in Beijing

A new type of COVID-19 is spreading in Beijing, according to preliminary results from the Chinese Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The virus is unlike the stand that was first diagnosed in Wuhan and all cases are linked to the Xinfadi vegetable wholesale market in the Chinese capital.

A Beijing government official said at a press conference on Sunday that nucleic acid tests should be given to anyone who lives near or was in any way in contact with the Xinfadi market. Additionally, the local government noted that Beijing is now entering "a special period" since multiple new cases of COVID-19 have been recorded for consecutive days.

Earlier, authorities said they close the Xinfadi market after over 50 people tested positive for the coronavirus in Beijing.
