The move comes amid mounting concern over a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. FULL STORY HERE: https://www.4cmitv.com/2020/06/14/2020-jun-13-beijing-goes-into-wartime-emergency-mode-after-more-covid-19-cases/
Eleven neighbourhoods around the wholesale market in the city’s southwestern Fengtai district have gone into lockdown, where an official said it was in “wartime emergency mode”.
The cluster was detected after throat swabs from 45 people, out of 517 tested at the district’s Xinfadi market, proved positive for coronavirus, although none of them showed symptoms of COVID-19, according to the authorities.
Officials have said more than 10,000 people at the market will be tested, and the premises disinfected.
