China’s Covid-19 situation worsened over the weekend, with more places reporting outbreaks and imposing curbs even as cities that had been locked down or under restrictions started to open up. 

Beihai, a seaside tourist city in southern China’s Guangxi province, has become the latest Covid hotspot, with more than 560 cases in the week since the first infections there were detected. The city locked down at least two districts including the popular Weizhou island, and is requiring residents in those areas stay at home, with multiple rounds of mass testing under way. The restrictions have stranded over 2,000 tourists, with the school summer break getting under way across China Monday.
