8,220 people barred from city entry

A TOTAL of 8,220 people in 4,854 vehicles have been turned away when trying to enter Shanghai, local police said yesterday.

People who have no residence and are not employed in Shanghai are denied entry for the time being.

Police take residence cards, employee cards, property ownership certificates, student cards and other documents as proof of a residence or employment in the city, but they will also check the information independently. People without proof or who have no residence or employment record will be turned away.

So far, over 5.6 million people in 2.4 million vehicles have gone through police checks at entrances into Shanghai via expressways and other roads, with 1,676 people taken to quarantine spots and 587 taken to hospital for having a fever.
