(Bloomberg) — Beijing reported two more Covid deaths as cases spiked, heightening concern the capital could see a return of tougher restrictions. 

The city reported 951 cases for Sunday, the most since Bloomberg started tracking the data on Sept. 1, 2021. A 91-year-old woman and 88-year-old man died yesterday, following the death of an 87-year-old man Saturday. He was the nation’s first documented virus-related death since May 26, when Shanghai authorities reported one fatality.
