According to the agency, city authorities have tightened quarantine measures and tightened workplace attendance controls, and remote work requirements have been enacted in a number of areas. It should be noted that this followed an inspection tour by Vice Premier Sun Chunlang, in charge of the fight against COVID-19 in China, during which she called for more thorough measures to break the virus transmission chains.

“Some organizations ignore COVID prevention policies and fail to monitor the health of their employees, opening a gap for the spread of the epidemic,” she said in a statement.

An example of disciplinary action was when some Beijing State Postal Service employees were fired and given a stern warning after an illness struck workers at a private logistics company under its jurisdiction. The regulator said the company did not organize coronavirus tests for its employees and did not follow strict vaccination rules.

In another case, several workers at a branch of the state-owned railway company in Beijing concealed their travel history and were investigated by police.

The Municipal Housing Authority said some operations of a major real estate agency in Beijing had been suspended after an employee violated a work-from-home requirement.

Earlier, Beijing began mass COVID testing on residents of the capital. The 3.5 million residents of the city’s biggest business district, Chaoyang, will undergo three rounds of mass testing.

The rise in cases in Beijing comes as mainland China faces its worst coronavirus outbreak since the start of 2020. Much of Shanghai, China’s largest city, remains under prolonged lockdown.
