BEIJING, CHINA - JANUARY 13: A man is given a nucleic acid test for COVID-19  by a health worker at a private testing site on January 13, 2022 in Beijing, China. While China has mostly contained the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic, and even though cases remain relatively low, recent outbreaks of the virus including the emergence of the highly contagious Omicron variant have prompted the government to lockdown nearly 20 million people in various major cities and to reinforce stricter health measures. Mask mandates, mass testing, immunization boosters, quarantines, some travel restrictions and bans and lockdowns have become the norm as China continues to maintain its zero-COVID policy. China's capital city Beijing, has been put on high alert as it prepares to host the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics which open next month. (Photo by Kevin Frayer/Getty Images)
