The construction of 200 large objects

In one of the districts of Beijing, Tongzhou, construction of more than 200 large projects has resumed. The branch of the administrative center of the capital or sub-center is located about 40 minutes from the heart of the metropolis and should play an important role in its unloading. In the future, some of the organizational functions of Beijing are planned to be transferred to Tongzhou, and new residential buildings will reduce the population density of the central areas of the city.


Today, several key Beijing municipal governments have already set up their offices in the Tongzhou area. Thousands of workers are busy building a branch of Beijing's prestigious Anzhen Hospital . The commissioning of the new medical complex is scheduled for 2024.


At the same time, intensive work is underway on the construction and decoration of the future sightseeing subcenter: the theater, libraries and museums. It is known that they will begin work at the end of this year. 


Zhang Wenhai, Engineering Department of Beijing Municipal Administrative Center:

« Our goal is to optimize all processes, including the entry of personnel, the supply of materials, as well as safety and quality control at construction sites. Compliance with these conditions ensures that the Tongzhou sub-center will be completed on time and in accordance with quality standards.


Beijing is being relocated by state-owned enterprises. Both of these cities exemplify environmental development and a scientific approach to urban development.


The policy of "zero tolerance" becomes more important against the background of the new version « Omicron”

The Chinese authorities plan to continue the policy of zero tolerance for COVID-19. This is necessary to protect the huge population and at the same time reduce the impact of the coronavirus. And it is especially important in the current conditions of the active spread of the Omicron-strain BA.2.


It is called the "hidden Omicron", it is known that it is transmitted faster than the previous versions. Today, more than 25,000 new local cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in mainland China. The majority of asymptomatic carriers are registered in Shanghai. The metropolis, in which 26 million people live, has been under closed control since March 28 due to a new wave of cases.


Liang Wangnian, Head of Government Response Team of Experts on COVID-19:

“According to outbreaks abroad and in some parts of the country, the death rate from the Omicron strain is generally higher than from the flu. If we are talking about the elderly population, the mortality rate will be many times higher. The risk is especially high for people over 80 years of age. Given the number of aging population in our country, we must be careful. Any negligence will lead to serious damage to the health of the elderly and other vulnerable groups.”


Experts note that another important feature of the Omicron strain is that it often mutates. It is not yet known exactly how this process will develop and what harm it can do to people's health.


Liang Wangnian, Head of Government COVID-19 Response Expert Team:

“Our tactic is to do everything possible to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on people's health and safety. At the same time, we must not forget about the balance between restrictions and normal life, the production cycle, economic development. We are introducing short-term controls in exchange for a full life in the future.”


Not all countries set such severe restrictions in the face of Omicron, but according to Liang Wangnian< /b>, this option is not for China. The Zero Tolerance policy is based on a scientific approach and aims to get the maximum benefit at the minimum cost.


Seasonal livestock migration ends in Xinjiang

In the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the annual migration of livestock to spring pastures has been completed. Seven million animals have left their winter grazing grounds in search of new food and water. In this region, seasonal pasture rotation has been established and special migration routes have been created, and therefore the fields have time to recover by the time the huge herds return.


This spring, livestock is taken over by Hejing County in Xinjiang. Local authorities regularly send aid to shepherds to ensure a smooth turnover of pastures.


Officer, Hejing County:

“While the shepherds with their flocks were on the road, we brought them food and water. When the transition was over, we sent fodder and concentrated feed to prepare the shepherds for lambing and rearing.”


Shepherd mountain pasture:

“In mid-March, my family moved from winter pasture to spring pasture. We have already overtaken the sheep. During these days, more than 60 lambs were born. We expect even more newborns in the near future.”


Many herders in Xinjiang prefer to transport their cattle to new places by truck. This saves time and increases the efficiency of livestock farming. In three months, seven million heads of cattle will be on the road again, now to summer pastures.
