Beijing's Xinfadi wholesale market reopened its pork market on Monday night after its north section reopened to vendors early this month.
Xinfadi, the largest wholesale market for fruit, vegetable and meat supplies in Beijing, previously suspended operations due to a COVID-19 outbreak in June, and has reopened part of the sections since August.
The reopening of its pork market will continue to focus on strengthening regular epidemic prevention, tracking of vendors, buyers and goods, and public health monitoring.
Two independent areas, which are the primary and secondary wholesale pork market, have reopened and all the buyers are required to register their personal information. However, no regular consumers can enter.
"There're 680 pigs in supply tonight, approximately one-fourth the amount before the epidemic," said Gu Zhaoxue, the deputy general manager of Xinfadi wholesale market. “Now all imported frozen meats are banned to sell here.”
The number of people entering the pork market is now limited to 600, and no more than one person per two square meters.
