The new covid-19 outbreak in China keeps growing

China canceled over 60% of its flights to Beijing, suspended classes, and reinforced social distancing requirements. 

BEIJING China (Agencies) – After the Covid-19 coronavirus spread again in China this week, the Asian country responded yesterday by canceling flights and suspending the resumption of activities, describing the situation as “extremely serious.”

“This has raised the alarm for us,” the Communist Party secretary said during a meeting of the Standing Committee.

China canceled over 60% of its flights to Beijing, suspended classes, and reinforced social distancing requirements. It was a marked setback for the Asian nation that in March had claimed victory over the deadly Covid-19.

In other countries where infections have rebounded, governments have responded by tightening containment restrictions again.
