In addition, at eleven persons, which are already in the closed Olympic system, infections were registered. The day before there was a total of 36 positive tests, the total number of Corona cases since January 23 rose to 139.
For the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, a strict Corona security concept is valid. All involved – from athletes to journalists – are completely separated from the rest of the Chinese population. To detect infections as quickly as possible, each participant must complete a PCR test daily within the “Olympia bubble”.
First hotel, then test
Anyone who has infected with the virus is isolated in a specially designated hotel. Only after two negative PCR tests at least 24 hours, those affected can leave this again before expiration of ten days. After this deadline, only one negative PCR test is needed.
