China reopens its borders from January 8 without quarantines for foreigners

Date: January 28, 2023 Time: 09:06:24

The Chinese Government, through the National Health Commission, has announced this Monday that as of January 8 it will reopen its borders and eliminate the need for quarantine for all foreigners who enter the Asian giant. More than three years after the first outbreaks of coronavirus in China, the country is taking a big step in easing the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, as reported by the Chinese newspaper ‘South China Morning Post’ citing up to three sources.

The heads of the health authorities of the provinces of Guangdong, Fujian and Jiangsu have confirmed that the National Health Commission has published this Sunday to lower the level of management of the coronavirus to category B, which implies the reopening.

‘Category B’ disease

Officials from the Commission of the provinces of Guangdong, Fujian and Jiangsu declared that Covid will cease to be a category A disease, the level of maximum danger and for whose containment the most severe measures are required, to become a category B, which contemplates a more lax control and implies the “necessary treatment and measures to prevent the spread” of the disease. According to the sources consulted by the newspaper, aligned with the official position of the Chinese government, this implies the end of the quarantines for travelers arriving in China.

The decision confirms the previous indications that pointed to a relaxation of the restrictions, such as the end of the mandatory nature of the test, who asked the local authorities to focus more on treatment than on avoiding contagion.
