Beijing (EFE).- China will allow some asymptomatic and mild covid infected “who meet certain conditions” to self-isolate at home instead of being confined to hospitals and isolation centers, like this has been happening for nearly three years, he told state broadcaster CCTV today.

The novelty is part of a new package of measures announced this Wednesday by the Council of State (Chinese executive) which also includes the reduction of the frequency of PCR tests to the population, among other decisions that represent a new step in the relaxation of the tough “zero covid” policy in place since the start of the pandemic.

With the exception of places such as hospitals, nursing homes and schools, it will not be necessary to present a PCR test to access public places, a requirement that has remained in force in recent months in the Asian country and that some cities had already started to relax in the last dates after registering protests.
