Chinese state media on Sunday reported more lockdowns and mass testing programs in Beijing neighborhoods as the first group of athletes and staff arrived at the Olympic village.
The Winter Games, dubbed the “Genocide Games” by human rights activists to highlight the Chinese regime’s atrocities, are now less than two weeks away.
“Beijing beefed up anti-epidemic measures through wider mass testing, imposing travel restrictions for people in [Chinese coronavirus] risk areas and requiring residents to take nucleic acid tests for purchasing medicines to cure fever, cough and others after the city reported nine new local infections on Sunday and registered a total of 43 cases during the past week,” the state-run Global Times reported.
The requirement for nucleic acid testing will be applied to everyone in Beijing who buys cough or fever medication. Residents of the city’s three coronavirus “risk regions” have been “asked” not to leave Beijing.
