BEIJING, June 16 (Xinhua) -- Beijing has disinfected 276 farm produce markets and closed 11 such underground and semi-underground markets as of 6 a.m. Tuesday to better curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, Chen Yankai, deputy director of the municipal market supervision bureau, told a press conference on Tuesday.
A total of 33,173 catering service providers have also been disinfected, Chen added.
Beijing has strengthened community-level disease prevention and control in response to the resurgence of domestically transmitted COVID-19 cases, most of which were related to Xinfadi, a large wholesale market for fruit, vegetables and meat, in southwestern Beijing's Fengtai District.
The city reported 106 confirmed domestically transmitted COVID-19 cases from June 11 to 15.
