Nation Mourns Covid-19 Victims

April 4th is this year's Qingming Festival, or Tomb-Sweeping Day – a traditional festival for Chinese families to visit the tombs of their ancestors to clean the gravesites, pray to their ancestors and make ritual offerings.

To express profound condolences to martyrs who sacrificed their lives in the battle against the epidemic and compatriots who died of the pathogen, national flags will be lowered to half-mast across the country and in Chinese embassies abroad on the day, and public recreational activities will be suspended nationwide.
