3 COVID deaths in Beijing…
The Chinese mainland reported its first COVID-19 deaths in six months over the weekend.
All three occurred in Beijing – an 87-year-old man, 91-year old woman and 88-year-old man. All had severe underlying conditions.
They are the first documented deaths from COVID since May 26, when Shanghai reported one fatality.
Guangzhou cases fall for third day in a row…

Good news. Long may they continue to fall.
