Beijing investigates 24-hour bar blamed for Covid outbreak

Beijing’s authorities have launched an investigation into a 24-hour bar that they believe to be at the centre of a cluster of several hundred Covid-19 cases in China’s capital over the past few days.

A joint team from an array of local government departments will investigate and deal with the Heaven Supermarket bar “quickly, strictly and seriously”, the state-backed Beijing Daily reported.

All of the city’s bars, nightclubs, karaoke venues, internet cafes and other entertainment venues are being inspected, the paper reported. All those in underground spaces are being shut and epidemic prevention work in the city is being “tightened”, it said.

Authorities are under pressure as the outbreak linked to the bar has left millions facing mandatory testing and thousands under targeted lockdowns and comes just days after a more than month-long partial lockdown ended in the city.

The announcement of the investigation came a day after state media reported that the vice premier, Sun Chunlan, visited the bar and said it was necessary to strengthen Covid prevention and control of key places.

People infected in the outbreak live or work in 14 of the capital’s 16 districts, authorities have said.

Drinking and dining in most of Beijing’s establishments only resumed on 6 June after more than a month in which the city of 22 million enforced curbs including urging people to work from home, and shutting malls and parts of the transport system.

On Monday, Chaoyang, the city’s largest district where the Heaven Supermarket bar is located, kicked off a three-day mass testing campaign for its roughly 3.5 million residents. About 10,000 close contacts of the bar’s patrons have been identified, and their residential buildings put under lockdown.
