China will start to roll back its most strict Covid policies, including forcing people who have tested positive into quarantine camps. Redacted spoke to sources in China who said for the first time in three years, they haven’t had to take a daily PCR test. Yes, every 24 hours for three years!
People with Covid can now isolate at home rather than stay in state facilities at their own expense. Here is an example of one such location, small and cramped and with a price tag of about $770 for 21 days. It’s not The Ritz, that’s for sure.
China will also no longer require recent Covid tests for public places or travel.
This comes after massive protests last week against strict lockdown measures and public safety.
