China's easing of quarantine period a glimmer towards easing of global isolation?

The previous plan called for 14 days in a hotel plus seven days of home quarantine.

China on Tuesday announced an easing of its quarantine requirement for people arriving from abroad.

Anyone coming from outside the country will be required to stay in a quarantine hotel for seven days, followed by three days of home quarantine, as per China's latest pandemic response plan.

The previous plan called for 14 days in a hotel plus seven days of home quarantine.

The latest move makes it easier for foreign business to resume work in the world's second-largest economy after 2.5 years of isolation period.

China has so far kept tight restrictions on international travel under a "zero-COVID" strategy that seeks to keep the virus out and stop any infections from spreading through lockdowns and mass testing.

Other countries including the United States and Japan have opened their borders to some extent while Europe is facing long lines of passengers as summer travel has overwhelmed airlines and airports.

The move is also significant as recent outbreaks in mainland China have largely eased.
