HEALTH officials recorded 31 new confirmed infections for June 16, bringing the cumulative infections since Thursday to 137 cases, the worst resurgence of the disease in the city since early February, Your Content has learned.

Authorities on Tuesday raised Beijing to a level two alert, the second-highest level in a four-tier COVID-19 emergency response level system. That reversed a one step downgrade from level two to level three a mere 10 days earlier.

At about 10:30 p.m., officials announced the cancelation of 1,255 flights.

“Two airports in Beijing have cancelled 1,255 flights,” China Daily reported.
