Beijing hotel guests must provide negative coronavirus test results

Guests are now required to produce negative covid-19 test results before being permitted to stay at hotels in Beijing.

The new measure requires proof of a negative nucleic acid test certificate on check-in and hotel employees are required to conduct morning and evening temperature tests on guests.

Additionally, guests should provide information about their personal contacts in Beijing.

The latest measures are effective now until further notice, said Zhou Weimin, a senior official at the Beijing municipal bureau of culture and tourism.

The city has recorded 172 imported cases of coronavirus so far.

Chinese authorities are especially concerned over a 'second wave' of infections from imported cases.

While most of these are Chinese passport holders returning from overseas, CNN reported a backlash against Africans living in the city of Guangzhou.

It says there have been several instances of Africans being evicted from rented homes and refused hotel rooms.

It seems to stem from a widely reported incident where an infected Nigerian attacked a Chinese nurse who tried to stop him leaving an isolation ward at a city hospital.
