After Shanghai in China, now the Omicron form of corona virus has started wreaking havoc in the capital Beijing as well. Strict restrictions were imposed in Beijing on Monday, adopting a zero Covid policy. While stopping food in restaurants here, citizens have been told that they will have to show a corona negative test report to enter public places. However, there is some relief in Shanghai.
China has imposed these restrictions at a time when a 5-day holiday has started in the country on International Labor Day. The country has recorded 32 deaths due to corona in the last 24 hours while 6,895 cases of locally asymptomatic infection were found.

With no cases coming out of the quarantine areas in Shanghai for the second consecutive day, about 25 million people have been allowed to come out of the house to get light and air. The corona epidemic in Shanghai started spreading in March.
