Citizens will be required to take public transport with a negative nucleic acid test result obtained within 48 hours, Zhang Wei told a press conference.

According to the official, a Mobility as a Service system will be launched as soon as possible to integrate payment and QR code scanning links, making sure citizens can use one app to satisfy their entire transport needs.
