(Bloomberg) — A Covid outbreak at one of China’s top media schools should be stamped out in the “shortest period of time,” Beijing government officials said Sunday, as the capital reported 15 new infections.

Schools have become new clusters for Covid in the capital, with a total of 81 cases, mostly students, found in two universities and one high school, according to a report from Beijing News. Students at China Communication University have been confined to their dorm rooms, while the other two schools implemented partial lockdowns. A government spokesman said the outbreaks stemmed from students returning from holidays.
