After four weeks of shut doors, restaurants in the Chinese capital once again open for business.
As the situation improves in the country, Beijing is set to relax restrictions on indoor dining, courier services and in-person classes,
but caution remains and frequent testing will stay in place.
"We've reduced the number of tables by 50%.
We will disinfect our dinnerware in boiling water, the chairs and other things after each guest leaves.
We will disinfect the floor every two hours."
Now, the lifting of restrictions comes as a welcome measure, especially for the service industry.
Consumption is expected to recover as public spaces, such as malls, reopen their doors.
"Retail sales are expected to be boosted 30 times by our funding support."
The Chinese government recently announced a new round of vouchers and coupons starting Friday.
A coupon package worth about 200 euros a month, available when buying energy-saving home appliances, in a bid to boost the lagging economy and promote cleaner energy.
