As the Health Commission announced in Beijing on Friday, around 32,700 new cases were reported. The number of daily new infections has more than tripled in two weeks.

Extensive restrictions on movement apply in cities with over a million inhabitants such as Beijing, the hard-hit southern Chinese city of Guangzhou or in Chongqing. In the capital, restaurants, shops and schools were closed – only supermarkets and markets were still open for grocery shopping. Employees must work in the home office. The 21 million Beijingers were asked not to leave their homes if possible.
