Images of Chinese people getting tested every day may soon be a thing of the past. On Wednesday morning, December 7, the Ministry of Health announced the relaxation of the very strict zero covid carried out for three years. “There are thousands of new cases every day. If you open now and we can no longer control the epidemic, it is worrying”, tempers a man. The authorities justify their reversal by the lesser danger of the Omicron variant.
Vacation bookings are skyrocketing
