The city recorded 388 locally transmitted confirmed COVID-19 cases and 1,098 asymptomatic carriers on Tuesday, the city's Health Commission said on Wednesday.

Of the cases reported on Tuesday, 290 were found to have been transmitted from the community level.

In past years' fight against COVID-19 , Beijing used Xiaotangshan Hospital, which had been used solely for SARS patients in 2003, to treat COVID-19 patients in a bid to contain the latest outbreak.
