Eight districts in the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou have been lockdown in an attempt to tackle new waves of coronavirus in the city.
Residents in “high-risk” compounds are required to stay at home, while those living in other areas should not go out unless necessary, CCTV reported.
People are not allowed to enter venues such as restaurants, shopping malls and indoor gyms within five days of arriving in Zhengzhou city, and need to complete three PCR tests within these days, local media reported, citing a media briefing.
They can take public transport after completing the first COVID test after arrival, according to local media.
The central city reported 996 COVID positive cases in the primary screening as of 8 p.m.(1200 GMT) on Wednesday, CCTV said.
