China’s National Health Commission reported another 31 confirmed cases of local transmission in Beijing, as of Tuesday
This pushed the cumulative infections since Thursday to 137 cases.
The number of infections in the city, the largest since early February, has prompted officials to reinstate some restrictions that had been relaxed in recent weeks.
As part of the restrictions, some 50% of the scheduled inbound flights and 40% of outbound flights at Beijing Capital International Airport have been or will likely be canceled on Wednesday.
Also, the movement of people in and out of the city is being strictly controlled.
Beijing’s roads and highways are, however, still open and companies and factories are still allowed to remain open.
