Major Chinese cities, including Wuhan, are locking down as the country doubles down on its zero-COVID policy.

Wuhan, a city with a population of 11.8 million people and the place that the pandemic first started, ordered 800,000 people in one district to stay home until Oct. 30 in response to 240 reported COVID cases over two weeks, according to the New York Post.

China is also locking down Guangzhou and Xining by sealing off streets and ordering people to stay inside. 

In Beijing, the Universal Resort theme park closed Wednesday after one attendee tested positive for the virus. 

China has reported more than 1,000 COVID cases three days in a row this week, still far below the average of more than 260,000 cases a week in the United States.
