Beijing requires 7 extra days of health monitoring for inbound travelers

Updated: January 17, 2021 21:50    Xinhua

Beijing has required inbound travelers to undergo health monitoring for seven additional days following 21 days of medical observation, authorities said on Jan 16.

The latest requirement was announced following a meeting by the Chinese capital city's COVID-19 prevention and control leadership group on Jan 15.

Anti-epidemic management at the designated quarantine venues will be further strengthened and nucleic acid tests targeting related personnel and surroundings will be conducted more frequently, according to the meeting.

Recently, there have been cases in Beijing and other cities across the country in which inbound travelers were confirmed as COVID-19 patients after 14 days of isolated observation, which led to a rebound in domestic cases.

In response to the situation, Beijing earlier this month extended the COVID-19 observation period for inbound travelers to 21 days following sporadic locally transmitted cases.
