China is racing to control a new outbreak in Beijing that reached nearly 100 infections over the weekend as it faces the biggest test of its coronavirus containment strategy yet.

• New outbreak is believed to have originated from the city’s largest fruit and vegetable market, Xinfadi.

• The market's chairman says the virus has been traced to a chopping board used by a seller of imported salmon, but officials remain stumped over the new cluster’s origins.

• Officials are fanning out over housing compounds, knocking on doors to question residents on whether they’ve had contact with market.

• All 79 confirmed cases detected so far in Beijing have been merchants or visitors to the Xinfadi market and their family members.

• In the Xicheng district where the market is located, people lined up late at night over the weekend at a sports stadium that’s been re-purposed into a testing center.
