Schoolchildren in China’s capital will have to get used to online teaching again on Wednesday.
All schools in Beijing, China’s capital, are closing again after the resurgence of coronavirus.
Beijing’s Education Commission on Tuesday ordered all of the schools in the capital to close.
The Commission states that all schools will return to online education from Wednesday. Universities should also suspend physical education, it says.
In addition, Beijing citizens are urged not to leave the city.
More than 100 cases of coronavirus infection have been confirmed in Beijing this past week.
It is considered a resurgence of coronavirus in the city, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Monday.
The new cases are linked to a food market called Xinfadi in the million city and have already closed parts of Beijing again. This applies, among other things, to sports and cultural institutions.
The capital has 21 million inhabitants.
More than 8,000 from the food market have been tested, and it is estimated that around 200,000 people have visited the market since May 30. Beijing is trying to track and test these, including using the door-to-door method.
The outbreak comes after China has largely said it had coronavirus under control.
Beijing’s outbreak amplifies the global fear of another wave of the virus after several countries around the world launched a reopening.
