COVID-19 has spread to Xinjiang. On October 3, Beijing reported two asymptomatic patients in Yili, Xinjiang. The authorities quarantined 192 people who had close contact with them. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is known for hiding the details about the actual spread of COVID in China. Also, it has initiated many strict measures in Xinjiang and always tries to keep such measures hidden from the world. Therefore the actual COVID infection situation there is unknown.
Airports in several Xinjiang cities, including Urumqi and Yiyi, cancelled a massive number of flights. The Yili train station stopped operating. Authorities imposed traffic control in Yili and also announced that the tourists in Yili may not leave the city.
