Three weeks are left before the opening of the Beijing Olympics, and in China, citizens have begun to urge citizens to open packages and letters wearing a mask and gloves, as there was speculation that the first case of Omicron arrived in the country along with a package from Canada. The first patient with the new strain claimed to have received a package from Canada that arrived in China via Canada and Hong Kong.
Chinese authorities are pushing for full vaccination of postal employees and promising to increase disinfection at pick-up and drop-off points.
State broadcaster CCTV appealed to citizens to minimize purchases abroad, as well as mail.
