Coronavirus Cases rises in Beijing China

Covid-19 instances in China are on the rise ahead of the Communist Party’s congress in Beijing.

Covid-19 cases in China: Covid-19 instances in China are on the rise ahead of the Communist Party’s conclave. In the run-up to a critical assembly of the Communist Party’s highest-ranking members next week, China’s new domestically transmitted COVID-19 cases rose to a near three-month high, and stricter controls to contain the spread are likely in the capital Beijing.

On Wednesday, the National Health Commission reported 93 new local symptomatic cases for Nov. 2, up from 54 the day before and the largest daily tally since Aug. 9 during China’s previous significant epidemic.

Coronavirus Cases rises in Beijing China

Beijing has recorded eight new local illnesses, the highest number since January 19.

While the number of new cases in the Chinese capital city each day since late October has remained low in comparison to the rest of the country, the country’s zero-tolerance policy has resulted in the adoption of rigorous measures to control the virus at all costs.

At the entrances of shopping malls, supermarkets, hotels, movies, and subway stations, temperature screening has been set up, and a legion of employees on the ground is checking the health codes of visitors on their cell phones.

Beijing officials have also advised citizens to avoid travelling outside of the city, to postpone marriages, to simplify funeral preparations, and to limit non-essential events.

As of this morning, 60.4 percent of flights scheduled for Wednesday at Beijing Daxing Airport had been cancelled, while 49.8 percent of flights at Beijing Capital Airport had been cancelled.

The surge in Beijing infections comes as the Communist Party’s Central Committee’s 300-plus members prepare for a big closed-door meeting on November 8-11. It will be the committee’s sixth and last “plenum” of its five-year mandate, which ends in 2022 with the next large Party Congress.
