Beijing Institutes 21 days Quarantine for overseas travelers as more positive results for coronavirus after 14 days

Amid rising concerns about longer incubation periods for COVID-19, Beijing has announced an extended quarantine period for inbound travelers.
 

At a press conference Tuesday, Beijing officials said people entering the Chinese capital from abroad must quarantine for 21 days — seven days longer than the city’s previous policy. While the first 14 days must be spent at a government-designated facility, the remaining week can be completed at a private residence with approval from local authorities.
 

Xu Hejian, deputy director of Beijing’s publicity department, said some newly diagnosed COVID-19 patients had experienced longer incubation periods, as they tested positive for the first time more than 14 days after being exposed to the virus. This development, he added, had prompted city authorities to implement stricter quarantine measures in a bid to prevent future outbreaks.
 

The announcement came days after China on Thursday approved its first COVID-19 vaccine, developed by domestic pharmaceutical company Sinopharm. In the following two days, more than 73,000 people in Beijing — including elderly residents and frontline medical workers — were inoculated.
 

During a separate press conference Monday, Xu said the city’s mobile health app has also been updated to display users’ nucleic acid test results and vaccination status. Those who have received the injection will have their information updated on the app, though it’s unclear if a record of vaccination will confer additional privileges.
