Tough Controls Deter China’s Migrants From Long-Awaited New Year Reunions
A migrant worker surnamed Min, who works as a housekeeper in Beijing’s northwestern Haidian district, never thought she would be denied entry to her hometown.
But this is what happened Tuesday morning, when Min traveled back to Shangluo, a small city in Northwest China’s Shaanxi province, for the traditional Lunar New Year family reunion.
She was immediately stopped by local health workers who were checking passengers’ health code apps outside the railway station.
