The municipal government of Beijing raised its COVID-19 emergency response level and reimposed some drastic disease-control measures after a new cluster of infections emerged in China's capital.

The Beijing government elevated the city's emergency response one notch to level 2, the second-highest among four levels of disease response, authorities said Tuesday night. The capital quickly rolled back reopening measures just days after most leisure venues in the city resumed services.
