During the three-day holiday for Tomb-Sweeping Day, people across the nation commemorated police officers who have died.

The cemeteries deployed 33,000 service staff, 76.6 per cent more than a year earlier, to maintain order during heavy traffic, helping disperse 899,000 vehicles, up 43.5 per cent year-on-year.

Tomb-Sweeping Day, or Qingming, falls early April, when Chinese people commemorate their deceased loved ones by visiting tombs and offering sacrifices. Modern and more eco-friendly ways of honoring the deceased have emerged in recent years, such as “Internet tomb-sweeping” and sea-burials.
