China, which is pushing the world into a corona crisis, is once again in the grip of the coronavirus.
BEIJING: China, which is pushing the world into a coronavirus crisis, is once again in the grip of the coronavirus. There has been a sudden increase in delta type cases of COVID-19 in China. The disease is spreading rapidly in 15 cities, including the capital, Beijing. After the outbreak of the Wuhan virus in December 2019, the state media called it the most widespread domestic disease outbreak.
Many Employees Airport Positive
The Global Times reports that the increase in new corona patients began at the airport in Nanjing, the capital of the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu, and spread to Beijing from five other provinces. The city of Nanjing has suspended all flights after several airport staff tested positive. New cases of the rapidly spreading delta type have been reported in 15 cities in China. The number of new patients is increasing. Concerns have also been raised about the widespread spread of the infection in various provinces.
Government fears about Beijing
The biggest concern for China is the influx of new corona patients in the capital, Beijing. The local administration of the city, which has a population of about 22 million, had defended the city for several months for the centenary celebrations of the Communist Party of China held on July 1. Now again the rate of infection is increasing here. Beijing is home to senior leaders, including President Xi Jinping.
China has not yet started air services from India and many other countries. Most international flights to Beijing have been diverted to other cities. In addition, passengers are required to set aside 21 days before entering the national capital. The total number of cases confirmed by Kovid-19 by the National Health Commission of China was 92,875. It is treating 932 patients, of whom 25 are in critical condition. The virus has killed 4,636 people in the country since last year.
