As the COVID pandemic began in China, Beijing was one of the first cities to shut schools and impose restrictions on various venues including small and large scale businesses, and also scaled up to test centres, increasing testing capacity for the virus. The strict norms followed by the administration and the citizens have helped the city recover very well compared to other parts of the world. Take a look:
