How to extend Chinese Visa for US green card holder currently stuck in China due to coronavirus?

My dad is a green card holder who entered China on 11/10/2019. His Chinese visa will expire on 05/09/2020. Due to coronavirus, there is a travel ban so he is stuck in China. Is there a way to extend the Chinese visa while in china?

I heard that foreigners' stay duration will be extended automatically for two months, so your dad should be supposed to leave before 07/09/2020. You can ask him to confirm this with the local authority in China.

Duration of stay is not the same as a visa's validity. Are you sure his visa allows the stay of 180 days? If that's the case then his duration of stay will be extended for an additional 60 days from May 9th. He does not have to do anything.
