China puts 4 million under lockdown due to spike in Covid cases
Beijing: The Chinese border city of Ejin Banner and Lanzhou in Gansu Province have been placed under a lockdown on Monday in view of a rise in domestic Covid-19 cases, reported the Global Times.
Officials added the “entry and exit of residents” would be strictly controlled and limited to essential supplies or medical treatment.
Health officials have warned that more infections may emerge as testing is ramped up in the coming days to fight the outbreak, which has been linked to a group of domestic tourists.
Strict stay-at-home orders have already been imposed on tens of thousands of people in northern China.
