Chinese capital reports new coronavirus cases for second day
BEIJING (Reuters) - China reported two new coronavirus infections in its capital on Friday, a day after the city government announced its first case in almost two months, and postponed plans to return some students to school.
The cases from a different part of the capital than the infection on Thursday affected two men who worked in the same facility for the China Meat Food Comprehensive Research Center, which examines topics such as meat processing, the state media said.
It was not immediately clear how infected they were.
Regardless, the city said it had dropped plans to reopen the school for first to third grade students on Monday due to the new cases.
Beijing News, the state media, said city officials had stopped selling beef and mutton on the Xinfadi wholesale market, where they were testing and disinfecting after finding that the patient had visited on Thursday.
The capital's Jingshen fish market has also been closed, Beijing News added. Although the market gave no reason to close, one of the patients had recently visited on Friday.
