Xinfadi wholesale food market is closed, with a second day of record high COVID-19 cases, and no clear source of the cluster. Security is tight around the massive Beijing food market that's been linked to a recent surge in COVID-19 cases.
Xinfadi is vast: it claims to be the largest agricultural wholesale market in Asia . It supplies 80 percent of Beijing's vegetables and meat, over an area roughly the size of 160 football pitches. WHO has called for thorough investigations - the origin of this outbreak has not yet been identified.
