"The city faces a grim and complicated situation with risks of further infections still present," Beijing municipal government spokesperson Xu Hejian said.
Several locally transmitted cases have recently emerged in Chaoyang, Xicheng and Shunyi districts of Beijing, again sounding the alarm for COVID-19 control.
Shunyi District is expanding its nucleic acid testing and has entered a coronavirus "wartime state," with tightened personnel flow management and mass testing in progress.
The global epicenter of COVID-19 has actually been Europe, not China. Blue is the Wuhan strain and everything else evolved elsewhere, mainly in Europe. Including the latest hot mess made in the UK. Most of the world was (and is) infected thru Europe.https://t.co/EtiZ21VkpHpic.twitter.com/tqKF1NHOZS
