China Welcomes International Travellers without Quarantine First Time, Cancels Zero Covid Policy

China reports daily record for three consecutive days for new Covid cases

Beijing:  China on Sunday welcomed international travellers and returning residents without the need to quarantine for the first time in three years, even as infections surge after it scrapped its stringent zero-Covid policy.

The first flights under China’s new “no quarantine” rules for international travellers landed at airports in Guangzhou and Shenzhen in southern Guangdong Province early on Sunday morning, state-run CGTN TV reported.

Officials said 387 passengers were aboard two flights from Toronto and Singapore on the day the country ended its strict COVID-19 restrictions for travellers.
