Beijing residents less worried as new virus cases drops

Beijing residents on Monday (June 22) said they felt less concerned about the coronavirus outbreak as the number of new infections dropped to single-digit.

The city of more than 20 million people reported its first case in the latest wave on June 11 linked to a wholesale food centre in the southwest of Beijing.

So far, 236 people have been infected in the worst outbreak in Beijing since COVID- 19 was identified in a seafood market in the central city of Wuhan.

To identify potential carriers, Beijing has been conducting tests on what it deems as higher-risk groups, such as restaurant workers and food and parcel couriers.

Even residents in some low-risk neighbourhoods have been tested.

As of June 20, 2.3 million people have been tested.
