Shanghai extends smoking ban

Shanghai – 1 March 2017 – 
Shanghai has widened its ban on public smoking. The city has had a limited ban on public smoking since 2010, but the regulation covered only certain spaces such as schools and libraries, Agence France-Presse reported.

The new rule expands the restrictions to all public indoor areas and some outdoor ones.

In June 2015 Beijing municipality adopted the toughest anti-smoking legislation in the country, banning smoking in offices, restaurants, hotels and hospitals. The southern city of Shenzhen introduced similar rules in 2014.
