Ahead of the opening of the Beijing Winter Olympics on the 4th of next month, the quarantine measures against the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19) in Beijing, the capital of China, have been further strengthened. This is in response to the judgment that the spread of COVID-19 is not serious, such as the first case of Omicron mutation in Beijing, which has maintained 0 new confirmed cases.

According to China’s state-run Xinhua News Agency on the 16th, the Beijing Municipal Government has made it compulsory for anyone entering Beijing from the 22nd to the end of March to undergo a nucleic acid (PCR) test within 72 hours of arrival. However, commuters were excluded.

In the first place, all people entering Beijing from other parts of China had to submit a PCR-negative certificate that was performed within 48 hours prior to arrival and present the green (normal) mark of ‘Jiankangbao’. However, the duty of PCR testing upon arrival is added.

Beijing municipal authorities Those who have arrived in Beijing should report their arrival to the administrative authority having jurisdiction over the place of residence, their company, or a hotel as soon as possible upon arrival, and requesting that they undergo a nucleic acid test.If PCR test is not performed, a warning message will appear in a pop-up window, which will affect going out and daily life.”

The reason that the additional period of the nucleic acid testing obligation is set to the end of March is because large-scale events are held one after another, starting with the Beijing Winter Olympics next month. Specifically, the Beijing Winter Olympics (February 4-20), Paralympic Games (March 4-13), These include the annual meeting of the National People’s Political Consultative Conference (the Political Consultative Conference) (March 4) and the annual meeting of the National People’s Congress (NPC) (March 5).

On the 15th, there was one confirmed case of Corona 19 in Beijing. It is the first time in 75 days since November 2, last year, that a new confirmed case occurred in Beijing.

The problem is that this confirmed person is a confirmed case of Omicron mutation. The spread of Omicron from Tianjin has finally spread to the capital, Beijing. Since the beginning of this month in China, the quarantine authorities are nervous as confirmed cases of Omicron have been confirmed in Zhuhai, Zhongshan, Tianjin, Dalian, Liaoning, Anyang, and Beijing in Guangdong Province.
