China has restored lockdown in some parts of Beijing as well as travel restrictions in the wake of a new surge of coronavirus cases as people fear the beginning of a new wave.
On Tuesday, June 16, an unnamed city official said that the present COVID-19 cases in Beijing are “extremely severe”, Daily Mail reports.
It should be noted that China heavily brought coronavirus under control as it carried out massive testing earlier in the year.
The country is now faced with the dilemma of combatting the new virus or keeping its economy open. The media noted that countries like New Zealand are in the same situation.

The new cases in Beijing have risen to 106 as authorities put more than 30 communities in the city on lockdown.
According to officials, the new outbreak is linked to a very popular food wholesale market called Xinfadi.
With the new development, testing has been increased to 90,000 per day. A virologist at Wuhan University, Yang Zhanqiu, said the new virus could be more infectious.
Meanwhile, YEN earlier reported that New Zealand reported two new cases of COVID-19 bringing a three and a half week run of no new infections to an end.

Health authorities confirmed that both new patients had recently arrived from the United Kingdom.
It was gathered that COVID-19 restrictions in the country had been relaxed to Level 1 after what was believed to be the last patient recovered from the virus.

In other news, an American nurse with the Twitter name Cherie Antoinette has said that in her eight years in the medical profession, coronavirus “is the worst disease” she has come across.
She said that whenever they tell patients they have recovered, they do not inform them of the health complications they may battle with in the future as a result of the disease.
Cherie hinted that health issues that may happen after could be a lung transplant, massive heart attack, or stroke.
The nurse said that another possible issue they do not tell recovered patients is that they may have to depend on oxygen to live the rest of their life.
