This is a screening clinic in Chaoyang District, downtown Beijing, China.

After the weekend, citizens who receive a corona examination continue on Monday.

As the number of infections increased day by day, many schools, parks, restaurants and sports facilities were closed.

Disinfecting agents are also placed at the entrance to the apartment to control resident access.

Residents are worried about the frequently changing quarantine measures.

Two elderly infected people died in Beijing on Sunday, following the death of a corona infected person in their 80s for the first time in six months in China.

In addition to the capital, lockdown measures continue in major cities such as Shijiazhuang in Hebei Province and Wuhan in Hubei Province.

China, which has gone into precise quarantine to minimize economic damage, is responding with a ‘partial ban’ instead of the entire city.

Meanwhile, the head of Hong Kong’s government, Chief Executive John Lee, was diagnosed with the coronavirus shortly after returning from the APEC summit.

He did not wear a mask at APEC, shaking hands with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and sitting next to Chinese President Xi Jinping.
