China locks down 400,000 people after virus spike

China has reinstated a strict lockdown near Beijing, affecting around 400,000 people, after a small surge in cases.

The restrictions have come into force in the Anxin country in Hebei province.

Only essential workers are allowed to leave their homes, while one member of a household is allowed to go out once a day to shop for necessities.

After the pandemic emerged in China at the end of last year, the country has managed to get new infections to a consistently low level.

To avoid a second wave, even small surges are taken very seriously by the country’s health authorities.
