Over 1200 Beijing flights suspended, China hit by new wave of Coronavirus

China’s Beijing Airport has been shut down as the country has been hit by a fresh wave of Coronavirus. According to the local media, around 60% of commercial flights in and out of Beijing are cancelled as the city is experiencing a new Coronavirus outbreak.

As per Chinese media, a total of 1255 flights to and from two prime airports in China have been cancelled given the current situation. The measure is being taken to contain the new outbreak in the country and limit the travel in and out of the city.

Health officials in Beijing have reported 31 new cases as of June 17, and have requested people not to leave the city at any cost. The country is now fearing a second wave of infections after it had controlled the first outbreak.

More than 30 residential areas in the city have been locked once again after thousands of people were linked to the new virus cluster. The virus spread is again believed to have begun in the huge Xinfadi wholesale food market. The officials as of now are testing each and everyone related to the market.

Beijing authorities, on Tuesday, raised the threat level from three to two (the second-highest level in a four-tier Coronavirus emergency), which triggered the suspension of flights. Even the schools have been shut down in the city and the government has stiffened the social distancing rules.

The world is aware of how the first Coronavirus spread started from a wet market in Wuhan, and spread to the whole world as a pandemic. As per reports, more than 8 million people have been infected with the deadly Coronavirus and 446,678 have died all across the globe.
