China announced today, Wednesday, the easing of restrictions related to Covid-19 on a large scale, stressing that some Corona infections can be subject to isolation measures at home, and it also reduced the requirements for conducting PCR tests.

Under the new guidelines, some patients who do not appear to have symptoms or with minor symptoms can undergo home isolation, which puts an end to the requirement to isolate all infected people in government facilities, and the frequency and scope of PCR examinations will also be reduced, according to the National Health Commission in Beijing.

Compulsory mass examinations, often seen as onerous condition of China's zero-COVID policy, will be restricted to "high-risk" areas and schools.

Travelers between regions will no longer be required to show a negative COVID-19 test conducted within 48 hours, nor will they be required to take a test upon arrival, according to the new rules.
