China is cutting the quarantine period for global visitors in a considerable step

June 29, 2022: -On Tuesday, China cut the quarantine period for international travelers, a big step toward reducing Covid controls that have persisted for over two years.

On Tuesday, the announcement also said that within China, close contacts of confirmed Covid cases would likewise need to spend seven days in quarantine, followed by three days of health monitors at home.

The Covid-related isolation requirements tended to previous for almost 14 days.

On Monday, Mainland China reported one confirmed Covid case with symptoms in the southern province of Guangdong and 21 patients with no symptoms. The cities of Beijing and Shanghai reported none in either category.
