Guangzhou’s Tianhe and Panyu Districts Implement ‘Strict Control of Personnel Movement’
Yesterday, November 25, Guangzhou’s Health Commission dispelled rumors that the city would go into a 10-day lockdown.
However, shortly afterward large parts of both Panyu and Tianhe districts implemented what is being called ‘strict control of personal movement.’
Baiyun district has already implemented similar measures.
During this time, residents have been advised that they shouldn’t leave their homes unless absolutely necessary, should avoid gathering in groups and a negative nucleic acid test issued within 24 hours is needed for entry to most places.
Tianhe district has halted public transport, but Panyu district has not.
Both districts have told residents to work from home.
The only places in Tianhe not under such measures are Shipai Street, Tianhe South Street, Linhe Street, Xiancun Street and Liede Street.
In Panyu, only Qiaonan Street and Shawan Street have not imposed the 'strict control of personal movement.'
Residents in both districts were told at around 11pm on November 25 that the measures would be imposed from midnight on November 26 until midnight on November 30.
Remember, this is not a lockdown, its strict control of personal movement. Surely you can see the difference?
