To prevent the transmission of the novel coronavirus, some subway stops in Beijing have been closed starting Wednesday.

Passengers cannot enter or exit subway stations at some stops along Line 1, Line 6, Line 7, Line 10, Line 14, and Line 17, but transfer is still allowed.



The stations will remain closed until further notice.

The city closed more than 40 subway stations, about 10 per cent of the total, and 158 bus routes on Wednesday, according to operators. Most of the suspended stations and services are in the Chaoyang district, where most infections were found.

Residents in Beijing’s medium and high-risk areas, as well as those in lockdown and controlled zones, should not leave the city in order to prevent virus transmission, city authorities said on Tuesday.

The same policy applies to people who live in communities, towns and villages where one or more confirmed COVID-19 case has been reported, said Tian Wei, an official from Beijing’s information office at a news conference on Tuesday afternoon.

Other residents should not leave the city unless absolutely necessary. Those who have to leave the city should first have negative nucleic acid test results from within 48 hours before departure.

After the five-day Labour Day holiday, workers must also have negative nucleic acid test results taken within 48 hours before returning to work.

Li Yi, spokesperson for Beijing’s education commission, said on Tuesday, that students of kindergartens, primary and middle schools will not go back to campus after the holiday in order to prevent infection risks. The return date will be decided according to the epidemic situation in the near future.

A senior government official said the city’s supplies for daily goods are sufficient and prices are stable.

Beijing has already started a district-wide nucleic acid testing in Chaoyang District on Monday after new local cases had been reported.
