From now on, travellers arriving in Beijing will be required to provide negative coronavirus test results when they check-in to hotels, under a new measure announced.
Zhou Weimin, a senior official at the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism, said the authorities will strengthen control and management of people who come to Beijing and stay in hotels to avoid any loopholes. Hotels will require guests to provide a national health clearance and a Beijing’s health condition app, with both showing ‘normal’.
Guests should also provide information about their contacts in Beijing and accept the health management requirement of the hotels. The Chinese authorities fear the possibility of a second wave triggered by arrivals from overseas or asymptomatic patients. China’s National Health Commission said 46 new cases were reported last week, including 42 from abroad.
