China eases strict zero-Covid measures – policy

In the fight against the corona pandemic, China has relaxed its strict zero-Covid measures somewhat. The State Council announced in Beijing on Wednesday in a new ten-point plan to ease quarantine, PCR tests and lockdowns.

The countrywide easing includes that there must be no movement restrictions in non-high-risk areas. As announced by the National Health Commission, there should be no loss of production or work. High-risk areas would have to be defined more precisely in the future and can affect individual buildings or just one floor. When traveling, a negative test is no longer necessary. In the case of infections without symptoms and mild courses of the disease, people could isolate themselves at home and treat themselves. If their condition worsens, they can go to designated clinics themselves.
