Footage filmed on Friday features public buses used as mobile COVID-19 testing stations in Haikou, Hainan province, to provide medical staff with comfortable working conditions during summer.

China's southern island province of Hainan with over 10 million residents started mass COVID-19 testing during the weekend, introducing a lockdown in some areas as the number of cases has rapidly increased.

At least 10 cities and regions have reportedly announced 'static management' or lockdowns across Hainan province.

The rapidly spreading outbreak in Hainan is the latest challenge for the Chinese government to balance its strict dynamic ‘zero-COVID policy' and economic growth.
