After announcing the closure and control of Chaoyang District and the closure of 100 subway stations, the Beijing authorities have recently closed 24 administrative villages in one town in Fangshan District due to 10 cases of positive Covid testing.

A Beijing resident said that although China’s capital officials have not declared a lockdown, this city is practically closed.
A video photographer in Beijing said that a negative nucleic acid certificate is required to enter the park. The park is an open space. So he doesn’t know why they need a nucleic acid certificate.

In a related development, CNA reported on May 21 that thousands of Beijing residents who tested negative for Covid-19 were still forcibly relocated to quarantine hotels overnight due to a handful of infections. Authorities released this order as China’s capital began to take more extreme control measures to deal with the epidemic.
According to Aboluowang, Ms. Zhang, a resident of Yancun Town, Fangshan District, said on May 20 that the local closures began on May 10. On May 22, 24 villages in the town were sealed off up until now.

Zhang said that the residential area she lives in had been locked down, and the government had put a seal on every door.

She said, after the blockade, people had many difficulties and complained a lot. Zhang added that the price of essential items has increased by significant amounts. For example, five chilis that used to cost only 2 yuan are now priced at 12.9 yuan.

As of Tuesday, May 17, there are 15 high-risk areas and 32 medium-risk areas in Beijing, and more than 100 subway stations have been closed successively during this period.

Before this, from May 1, Beijing residents entering public places and parks were required to present a 48-hour nucleic acid negative certificate.
