Beijing On Lockdown, 11m Residents Work From Home

While Shanghai remains under lockdown, the outbreak continues to worsen in Beijing. Authorities are escalating their controls. Many neighborhoods have adopted closed management. Couriers and delivery workers are prohibited from entering.
Beijing has a total of 16 administrative districts with a population of permanent residents of over 20 million. The outbreak has now affected 15 districts. Some of the more critical districts involve a minimum population of 11.8 million people.
The virus has breached the heart of the Chinese Communist Party; the forces at play in Beijing’s control measures could trigger unpredictable events that could exacerbate the already volatile political scene in China in 2022.
