Covid: China will abolish the quarantine for those arriving from abroad


Starting January 8th. In the country a peak of cases. Xi: "We need a line of defense to save lives" (ANSA)

China will abolish the mandatory quarantine for those arriving in the country starting January 8.

This was announced by the Chinese health authorities, who are gradually easing the anti-Covid restrictive measures.

The easing comes alongside a

spike in COVID-19 cases

in China, with an estimated 250 million cases in twenty days.

In China, after the easing of anti-Covid restrictions, "in the face of the new situation

, it is necessary to launch a more targeted health campaign, strengthen a community defense line

for epidemic prevention and control, and effectively protect people's lives, safety and health".

This is what can be read in a directive from Chinese President Xi Jinping to the country's officials, quoted by state television, in the first intervention after the easing of restrictions.

Since then,

China has recorded the highest infection curve globally, with some studies estimating the risk of more than 1 million deaths in the coming months
