Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in China, there have been more than 5,200 deaths due to COVID-19, indicating that the zero-COVID policy has helped save lives.
However, the strict restrictions to contain COVID have had a negative impact on the Chinese economy, which has led to the easing of restrictions.
The quarantine period has been reduced from 7 days to 5 days while the quarantine restrictions on people coming in contact with patients have been lifted.
