New Travel Restrictions Imposed In Beijing To Prevent COVID-19 Spread

Beijing: To prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Beijing has rolled out new measure by imposing restrictions on travellers from regions with relatively high virus transmission rates.

According to reports, people from medium or high-risk regions who are planning to return to Beijing will be prevented from buying tickets for air and railway services.

The Beijing authorities said that health codes for people who are still in medium- and high-risk regions will be adjusted to the yellow colour, and anyone with a health code that is not green will not be allowed to board planes or trains bound for Beijing.

Presenting a green health code will be a must.

This comes as several cities in China are witnessing a surge in Covid-19 cases. The delta-driven outbreak grew to over 500 symptomatic cases scattered across 15 provinces and municipalities.

Meanwhile, Beijing Daxing International Airport has announced the suspension of flight routes from 15 cities including hotspots of outbreaks such as Nanjing, Yangzhou and Zhangjiajie.
