Covid-19: Beijing Pauses Schools Due To Fear Of Outbreak


(BBC) – The call comes after 15 elementary school employees had contact with a patient diagnosed positive.

The Beijing Municipal Commission on Education Friday announced that academic activity was stopped in that capital after two straight days reporting new positive COVID-19 cases.

Even when about 520,000 students from first to third grade were supposed to return to classes next June 15, the fear of a new disease outbreak made authorities to call it off. So far, a new date is undetermined.

This measure arrives almost a week after the government downgraded the health emergency level. At the time these infections episodes occurred, China had not reported any positive cases to Covid-19 for two months.
