China: Major railway hub in Nanning empty due to new restrictions after COVID-19 outbreak in Beihai

China, Nanning
July 17, 2022 at 17:41 GMT +00:00 · Published

Nanning's largest railway hub could be seen poorly frequented on Sunday, as security was beefed up following the COVID-19 outbreak in Beihai.

Footage shows some passengers entering the railway hub; patients with suspected COVID-19 infection boarding a bus to be transported to an isolation facility.

Nanning East Railway Station, which usually sees more than 50,000 tourists daily, increased the number of information banners and QR codes in the main hall, while passengers' body temperatures were being checked before boarding trains. Tourists travelling from Beihai to Nanning were examined in a designated area; in case of a suspected infection, buses stood ready to transport patients to an isolation facility.

The measures came after Beihai, a coastal city in Guangxi, has reported more than 180 asymptomatic COVID-19 infections since the beginning of the week, prompting new restrictions on public life in its downtown area.
