Owners of roast duck restaurant under investigation after failing to register 477 customers, violating anti-epidemic regulations
The owners of a roast duck restaurant in Beijing have been placed under investigation by the police for failing to register customers and take their temperature. A customer who put the epidemiological investigation in jeopardy by denying he went to the restaurant was also charged.
On March 10, four employees of the restaurant contracted COVID-19 after a customer surnamed Wang dined at the Yu Le Xuan roast duck restaurant in Beijing’s Dongcheng district. In a follow-up epidemiological investigation, the authorities found that the restaurant failed to fulfill epidemic prevention requirements such as registering customers and taking temperature, the Beijing police announced on Sunday.
Of the 830 patrons who visited the restaurant between March 10 and 15, 477 did not register, which seriously hampered follow-up epidemic prevention and control measures such as flow traceability, personnel management and isolation and transfer, the Beijing police said.
