Chinese cities including Beijing, Guangzhou and Chengdu have continued to optimize anti-epidemic policies in accordance with the newly released 20 prevention and control measures, with businesses resuming and temporary restrictions being lifted in a managed way. Chinese Vice Premier Sun Chunlan on Wednesday underlined the importance of continually optimizing the country's response to COVID-19.

 

Several districts in Beijing have announced that people who stay at home and don't need to go to public places can now opt not to take daily nucleic acid tests, an approach designed to achieve a more precise way to reduce spreading risks and also conserving resources. 

 

Along with Beijing, several districts in Guangzhou, capital of South China's Guangdong Province, on Wednesday issued notices on optimizing anti-COVID-19 measures including lifting temporary restrictions, adjusting risk regions' classification, and resuming on-site classes, according to the Guangzhou Health Commission.

 

In Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality, residents in communities which did not report a positive case for five days don't need to participate in the latest round of mass nucleic acid testing, the local authorities said earlier.

 

Similar policies have also been announced in other major Chinese cities such as Shenzhen and Chengdu. Shenzhen authorities said that the restriction should be lifted in a timely manner if the conditions allow and called for precise classification of designated high-risk regions.

 

In Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan Province, residents are now only required to show their health code and don't need to present nucleic acid test negative reports before entering their communities. Although residents still need to present 24-hour negative report before entering entertainment venues and a 72-hour report is needed before entering other public venues including supermarkets.

 

The central urban area of Shijiazhuang in North China's Hebei Province also announced on Wednesday the resumption of much of daily life starting from Thursday.
