The Facts

On Wednesday, China’s National Health Commission (NHC) introduced major changes to its stringent COVID-19 regulations.
The new 10-point policy allows asymptomatic cases and patients with mild symptoms to quarantine at home.
These patients require two consecutive COVID negative tests on the 6th and 7th day of isolation to release themselves from quarantine.
NHC spokesperson, Mi Feng, explained to reporters that changes to inbound travel-related measures would be “gradual.”
The new regulations, many of which reflect recent relaxations announced by cities across the country, were announced following a Politburo meeting chaired by President Xi Jinping on Tuesday.
