In response to the new outbreak that started at the city’s Xinfadi wholesale market last week, the authorities announced the second-highest security level on Tuesday, partially sealing off Beijing. Flights from and to the capital have been drastically reduced. Bus traffic to other provinces has also ceased. People should no longer leave the city.
