China: Tourism city Xiamen partially seals off two districts, one hospital after COVID-19 cases

Beijing: China's  tourism city Xiamen has partially sealed off two districts and one local hospital early Monday as two positive COVID-19 patients were detected, media reports said.

The Global Times found that local residents and people who are about to travel to Xiamen are clearly rattled over the two positive cases as two national holidays approach in a few days.

Xiamen received more than 2.71 million visitors during the Mid-Autumn Festival and the October 1 National Day holidays in 2020, reports the newspaper.

Xiamen's Tongan district and Siming district respectively imposed lockdowns of four streets and at least five streets in one community on early Monday. Residents living within the areas must stay indoors, reports the newspaper.

China is believed to be the place from where COVID-19 virus emerged and then spread globally.
