#Beijing, the capital of #China, reported 5,006 cases of #Covid on Wednesday as the nation battles to contain the worst-ever viral outbreak amidst mounting public discontent with President Xi Jinping’s zero-Covid policy. 34,942 new Covid infections were reported in China on Wednesday, a modest decline from the peak of 38,808 cases reported over the weekend.

Despite the fact that many areas in Beijing are currently at a standstill because of growing limits, the authorities have refrained from announcing widespread testing. According to reports, Beijing’s makeshift hospitals for treating mild cases of Covid and those for treating more severe cases are approaching capacity as a result of the rapid increase in Covid infections. This has also encouraged more people to isolate at home by default.

Residents of Beijing continue to be concerned about contracting the illness as well as being detected in close contact and being taken to subpar government isolation facilities.

The number of cases may be naturally leveling off, but recent initiatives to exempt those who spend a lot of time at home, such as youngsters and the elderly, from routine testing may also be to blame for the decreased figure.

Cities across China that have epidemics have retreated from strict regulations. On Wednesday, Guangzhou lifted the curfew in all but one of its 11 districts. Many high-risk locations continued to have restrictions, providing a confusing web of laws for the inhabitants to understand. Wednesday saw 7,252 instances in Guangdong province and 6,584 in Chongqing, a western city.
