China Heightens Travel Restrictions in East China as Cases Climb
Authorities in East China’s Zhejiang province have imposed stringent outbound travel and transport restrictions, including slashing the number of flights to the nation’s capital Beijing. The latest Covid outbreak in the province has grown to more than 230 cases since early December.
The province is an economically vibrant manufacturing hub of more than 60 million people. The recent Covid outbreak linked to a funeral has put more than 570,000 residents under quarantine, while suspending hundreds of bus operations and resulting in some event cancelations, authorities said.
