Beijing is now the epicenter of a second COVID-19 outbreak in China.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) claimed that the new virus outbreak started in Beijing on June 11, with most confirmed cases being related to Xin Fa-Di Wholesale Market. The market was locked down by armed police on June 13 and all sales banned.
A vast quantity of fresh vegetables, fruits, and seafood have become rotten and had to be thrown away, causing huge business losses.
But on June 17, many households in the communities near the market are said to have no food at all.
