Guangzhou reported 8,181 new cases of COVID-19 this morning, Monday, November 21, a fall of 253 from yesterday's 8,434.
It marks the third day in a row that cases have decreased in the city but despite the good news, several districts have tightened their COVID-19 pandemic prevention and control methods.
Dine-in services have been halted in the city’s Tianhe district, dashing the hopes of many who thought they would be able to watch the World Cup in the area's popular bars and restaurants.
KTV bars, massage parlors, cinemas, pool and mahjong halls, etc. have all been ordered to temporarily close.
Panyu district is still operating dine-in services, so we think we know where those wishing to catch a game and sink a few cold ones will be heading tonight.
In Baiyun, a district-wide suspension of public transport is in place.
In Huadu, Nansha and Conghua districts, offline teaching can resume as of today, Monday, November 21, 2022 for kindergartens and primary and secondary schools.
