Beijing reported 137 confirmed domestically transmitted COVID-19 cases from June 11 to 16. All cases have been traced to the Xinfadi wholesale market, which supplies about 80 percent of the capital's vegetables and fruits, as well as other farm produce.
In this difficult situation, how can you shop for produce safely and eat healthy in Beijing? Here are some helpful tips.
Shopping for food safely
1. Always wear a face mask when food shopping.
2. Keep at least one meter of distance between you and others, and avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose with your hands.
3. If possible, sanitize the handles of trolleys or baskets before shopping.
4. Once home, wash your hands thoroughly and also after handling and storing your purchased products.
