Beijing Reports First COVID Deaths in 6 Months Amid Public Unrest

HeadlineNov 21, 2022

China reported three COVID-19 deaths in Beijing since Saturday — the nation’s first deaths linked to the coronavirus in six months, as officials warn Beijing is facing its worst outbreak since the start of the pandemic. This comes as China’s strict “zero-COVID” policy has triggered rare public protests.

Meanwhile, in the U.S., Los Angeles County is advising residents to once again start masking indoors amid rising cases. COVID-19 is still causing an average of close to 300 daily deaths in the U.S.
