China has locked down a city on the border with Myanmar and will launch a mass coronavirus testing program after a handful of infections were detected.

The three cases were found in the city of Ruili in western Yunnan province, a significant land border crossing point with neighboring Myanmar.

City officials said in a statement Tuesday that residents were being told to stay home, and people had been forbidden from entering or leaving the city from Monday evening.

They said every resident would be tested for the virus in Ruili, which is home to more than 210,000 people.

Businesses have been closed except for supermarkets, pharmacies, and food markets.
