Busier streets as Beijing eases COVID curbs

STORY: "Now that I'm back at work, I feel like I've been resurrected. While I was at home, I didn't step outside my door, didn't go anywhere. It was really boring," said Li, a local resident who only provided his surname.

Queues for COVID-19 tests were still seen as workers disinfected areas in Beijing's largest district of Chaoyang, where residents are still required to work from home.

Most community compounds have also set up shelves for delivery packages at gates to prevent non-residents from entering.

From May 27 to 3 p.m. May 29, Beijing reported no new COVID-19 community infections, excluding areas under quarantine, a local health official said on Sunday.

While the city's outbreak is deemed under control, risk of a rebound still exists, the official warned.
