Newsline: US consulates in China suspend services amid Covid-19 wave

US consulates in China have suspended most of their services because of the Covid-19 surge across the country. The US embassy in Beijing and consulate in Shanghai have limited their services to passport and emergency consular services. Consulates in Guangzhou, Shenyang and Wuhan will only offer emergency consular services until further notice, the US Mission to China announced on its WeChat account. The announcement said the suspension was because of the “operational impacts caused by the surge of Covid-19 infections across China”. (https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/world/us-consulates-in-china-cut-services-as-covid-19-wave-sweeps-country/ar-) Visa services have been halted except for a few previously scheduled services in Shanghai.
