Beijing (China), May 29: While the Chinese capital Beijing gradually returns to normalcy, experts warned that the work to prevent Covid-19 cannot be relaxed as the city still has many high-risk areas where Omicron flare-ups can be seen.
Even if the administration has chosen to relax some of the restrictions, the city still has seven high-risk areas and 16 medium-risk areas. According to Wang Guangfa, a Beijing-based respiratory expert, the city must maintain focus because there is still a risk of imported cases.
On Saturday, Beijing's sports bureau announced that gyms and fitness centres will be reopened in an orderly manner in districts, adding that gyms can open at 50 percent customer limits.
Except for controlled zones, public transportation, metros, and taxis have resumed service in the districts of Chaoyang, Shunyi, and Fangshan. According to The Global Times, the Fangshan and Shunyi districts began transitioning from remote work to office work on Sunday.
With social media exposing the government's Zero-Covid policy, China's Shanghai has already seen the worst Covid breakout, and with this in mind, Beijing must keep an eye out for possible Omicron flare-ups and its aftermath.
Shanghai residents are being subjected to unprecedented neglect, mistreatment, and abuse as a result of China's Zero-Covid policy, with leaked videos on social media confirming blatant human rights violations.
These violations, disguised as "pandemic prevention," have shown the cruel and inhumane side of Communist China's system.
