Bus for COVID-19 quarantine in China crashes, killing 27

BEIJING (AP) — A bus reportedly taking 47 people to COVID-19 quarantine in China has crashed, killing 27 and injuring 20 others. Police said the bus overturned before dawn Sunday on an expressway in Guizhou province, without mentioning any connection to quarantine. Chinese business news outlet Caixin says officials confirmed reports that the passengers were “epidemic-related people” being taken from provincial capital Guiyang to a county about 125 miles away. Guiyang reported about 180 new cases on Friday. China has maintained a strict “zero-COVID” policy that isolates infected people and close contacts to try to contain the spread of the disease.
