China's national civil servant exam, which is scheduled to take place December 3 and 4, has been delayed and has yet to be rescheduled. Several other exams and activities have also been delayed as China's daily COVID-19 infections surpassed 40,000 on Sunday.

China's National Civil Service Administration (NCSA) announced the delay on Monday, saying the arrangement was made given the current epidemic situation.

According to NCSA, more than 2,500,000 people enrolled for the exam with a record number of 37,100 vacancies across the departments and institutions as part of the central government 2023 intake.

The national health commission reported 40,052 new COVID-19 cases across China on Sunday, 9,108 of which were reported in South China's Guangdong Province, with 3,888 identified in Beijing.

The Beijing Education Examinations Authority on Sunday also postponed the college English test in Beijing which was scheduled for December 10. China Audio-video and Digital Publishing Association delayed the China Game Industry Annual Conference in Guangzhou and China E-sports Industry Annual Summit in Shenzhen.

In response to concerns among students in response to the current epidemic outbreak in Beijing, some universities have opened registration channels for students returning home in advance to reduce the risk of using mass transport.
