The new round of new crown pneumonia outbreak in China continues to spread.

The new round of new crown pneumonia outbreak in China continues to spread. At present, cases of infection have been found in 11 provincial regions including Shaanxi, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia and the capital Beijing, with nearly 200 confirmed cases.

According to official media reports, the spread of the epidemic was mainly related to multiple tour groups. As early as ten days ago, two couples traveling from Shanghai to the western city of Xi’an were tested positive for the new crown virus.

Authorities called the virus in this epidemic a Delta strain and said the source of the epidemic “comes from abroad.” As China still implements a strict “zero-clearing” policy, large-scale nucleic acid tests have been carried out immediately in many places, and many residential communities have also begun to be closed for management.

In order to prevent the spread of the epidemic, Gansu Province, which relies heavily on tourism, announced the closure of all tourist attractions, cinemas and other entertainment venues in the province; Beijing and Wuhan announced the postponement of marathon events. In addition, with the opening of the Beijing Winter Olympics only a hundred days away, Beijing also announced the implementation of strict control policies for personnel entering Beijing.
