China denies allegations that Beijing was closed for three days

China has denied allegations that it has imposed a three-day lockdown in Beijing due to the country’s worst COVID-19 epidemic. According to authorities who clarified the lockdown “rumors” on Thursday, a large number of locals had crowded supermarkets in China to stockpile food. Locals, on the other hand, are advised to stay at home and undergo nucleic acid testing during the next three days, according to authorities. Beijing reported 36 COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, according to Pang Xinghuo, a Beijing health official. Of them, 32 were detected in regions under management and four beyond those areas.

Of the new local cases, 227 infections were reported in China’s financial hub Shanghai. Shanghai also reported 1,869 locally transmitted asymptomatic infections, out of a total of 2,140 such cases newly identified on the mainland. Thursday also saw eight provincial-level regions reporting 47 imported COVID-19 cases, as per the Commission. Six new suspected cases arriving from outside the mainland were reported in Shanghai, and no new deaths from COVID-19 were reported on the day, it added
