Beijing reported a COVID-19 family cluster of four people on Tuesday morning and the risk level of the residential community was raised to medium afterwards, according to Pang Xinghuo, deputy director of the Beijing Center for Disease Control and Prevention, at a news conference on Tuesday.

The four people -- a couple, their daughter and the daughter's grandmother -- were confirmed as COVID-19 patients on Tuesday morning.

Chaoyang district, where the patients work and study, had triggered an emergency response on late Monday afternoon when the local authority received information of the potential risk.
