Beijing has been expanding testing in the city of 20 million since a cluster of infections linked to a food wholesale market erupted over a week ago.

Beijing is capable of screening almost one million people a day for the novel coronavirus, an official said as testing continued across the city to try to contain the spread of a fresh outbreak.

Testing was initially focused on people who worked or shopped at the Xinfadi market or lived nearby but it has been expanded to include residents in many other parts of the city as well as food and parcel delivery workers.
