(Reuters) – China’s capital will extend COVID curbs beyond the May Day holiday, including closures of entertainment venues and gyms as hidden community-level transmission has been discovered through screenings, state television said on Wednesday.

Authorities will continue to cap people flows at public venues at 50% and restaurants will continue suspending dining-in, the report said.
