The supply of daily necessities such as meat and vegetables increased by 1.5 to 2 times at present at supermarkets in Beijing as locals hurry to make binge purchases in case epidemic restrictive management like lockdown may be implemented in the capital city.
A GT reporter noticed at an open fair on Monday that the provision of daily necessities is adequate although there are more customers. Some merchants told GT that the cost to buy goods like eggs, rice and flour, roughly rose by 10%. (Photos: Li Hao/GT)
