Covid in China

The latest number of Covid infections in Mainland China are greatly improved from the last time I looked, which was at the time when the numbers were rising again in Beijing, and indicates that the virus is suppressed in China, if not eliminated altogether. I mention this because many people are still under the impression that Beijing is struggling to contain a second wave (as was reported in China Bites in mid June) which doesn’t appear to be the case now.

According to a report this week in the China Daily, China recorded six imported COVID-19 cases on Tuesday this week, all imported from overseas, with three in Shanghai. There are 284 patients still being treated in China this week, including three in a severe condition. The latest numbers indicate that China has reported a total of 83,611 confirmed COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic, with a total of 4,634 deaths.

China’s relatively low numbers will enable some ‘Covid free’ countries to consider opening their borders to Chinese tourists, students, shoppers and businesses, which will have a positive impact on their Covid-ravaged economies. I wonder who will be the first?
