Beijing extends work-from-home order as COVID-19 cases rise

Beijing has extended orders for workers and students to stay home and ordered additional mass testing as cases of COVID-19 again rise in the city

BEIJING — Beijing extended orders for workers and students to stay home and ordered additional mass testing Monday as cases of COVID-19 again rose in the city.

Numerous residential compounds in the Chinese capital have restricted movement in and out, although conditions remain far less severe than in Shanghai, where millions of citizens have been under varying degrees of lockdown for two months.

Beijing on Monday reported an uptick in cases to 99, rising from a previous daily average of around 50.
