The Beijing government; has decided to impose strict travel restrictions in the province. Henceforth, travelers from high-risk areas; are not allowed to enter the province anyway. People who are planning to return from areas with high transmission rates; will not get the opportunity to book; either air tickets or railway tickets. After a long period of the flat curve; China has again started to witness new COVID-19 cases; especially the Delta variant ones.

The Government Cancels the Beijing International Film Festival

Amid rising COVID-19 cases in China; the authorities have canceled; the Beijing International Film Festival which was scheduled from August 14-21. The film festival is canceled; due to general safety and health concerns. However, the organizers haven’t announced the new date for the film festival. Besides that, they didn’t even mention; how long they will delay the event. We expect that until and unless the situation in China approves; they are not going to organize the film festival. They haven’t given any more updates; regarding the film festival. Let’s wait until the situation in China improves.
