    Jan 9th 2023 - Quarantine Free Travel to China

    Travel could resume as soon as January 9, the report said, citing unnamed people from the Guangdong health commission. China will require visitors from Hong Kong to undergo three days of home monitoring, it added.

    The resumption of tourism from the mainland would be a boon for Hong Kong’s economy, which has been hobbled by more than two years of Covid-related border restrictions. The city could see an estimated 7.6% boost to its gross domestic product from China’s reopening as exports and tourism income climbs, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. economists said Monday.

    In another sign from senior Chinese officials that the country is emerging from its Covid Zero isolation, the country’s ambassador to the US said Monday that it will welcome more international travelers in the “near future.”

    Recipe for a massive covid bloodbath:

    - Country of 1.5 billion suddenly opening up
    - inferior vaccine
    - many elderly not vaccinated
    - flu season
    - CNY (travel) coming up

    Stir well, cook at a chilly temperature for 1 to 2 months and enjoy the show...

    3 shots of Sinovac should be considered vaccinated i.e. massively reduce the chances of death for over 80's.

    The article below suggests after 2 years of vaccine roll-out just 26% of the high risk over 80's is fully vaccinated. I hope that is not true.

    From reading a spate of recent articles, you need to add inferior medical infrastructure to the list. There is neither the trained staff nor equipment to cope with a surge in critical cases. There are very few ICU beds to deal with and support patients who would otherwise survive.

    It looks like it will be a very grim few months.
