Policing has been stepped up on China’s railways and at scenic spots for the May Day holiday to prevent crime and ensure travelers’ health against the COVID-19 epidemic.
Scenic spots across China have focused on epidemic prevention and orderly tourist flow during the May Day holidays. Traveler footfall has been reduced to 75 percent of usual levels at Xuanwu Lake in East China’s Jiangsu Province, said lake management office director Rong Feixia. The park has also upped cleaning and disinfection.
Similar measures have been enforced at Longhu Mountain in Jiangxi Province where dragon dances are being targeted at tourists.
Huaguo Mountain in Jiangsu Province has been declared free for police and medical staff during the holiday.
