A district in the Chinese capital Beijing is on high alert after dozens of people there tested positive for the coronavirus – the first after two months of no infections in the city.
A wholesale market and 11 neighbourhoods in its vicinity have been placed under lockdown.
Throat swabs taken from 45 people at the market came out positive for COVID-19.
District officials say they are in ‘wartime’ footing.
