Beijing, Feb. 15, in the face of the changes in the epidemic situation, many tourists took the initiative to cancel business trips, visit relatives and friends, travel and vacation arrangements. Li Wenxin, deputy general manager of China Railway Group, said at a press conference on the 15th, “we originally expected the railway passenger flow after the Spring Festival festival to be 880 million, with an average of 11.2 million per day. However, as of yesterday, less than 40 million people have been sent after the festival, with a daily average of 1.84 million people, down 83% year on year. Since February 11, the number of passengers sent by the railway has been less than 1 million for four consecutive days, with 115 million tickets refunded.
