China's capital Beijing to lower COVID-19 response

BEIJING, July 19 (Reuters) - Beijing will lower the emergency response level of the coronavirus outbreak in the Chinese capital to Level III from level II, an official from the municipal government told a press briefing on Sunday.

The city issued the second level response on June 16 after several infections of the new coronavirus were found to be linked to a major wholesale food market.

Beijing has reported no new cases in the past 13 days. (Reporting by Muyu Xu, Xu Jing and Ryan Woo; Editing by William Mallard)
