    China says most people with Covid will now be able to quarantine at home rather than in state facilities in a major easing of its zero-Covid policy.

    Those with mild or no symptoms can now stay at home and self-report results.

    The reforms come just a week after civil protests against pandemic controls erupted across the nation.

    The country has also scrapped PCR test requirements for most public venues except hospitals and schools.

    Also note that close contacts only need to quarantine for 5 days, not the 7 in HK. Hopefully HK will follow suit.

    It's actually 5+3 so 8 in total.

    That was the old rule (5 in centre plus 3 at home). The new rule, according to SCMP, is 5 at home:

    Their close contacts will also be able to quarantine at home for five days, instead of the earlier requirement to spend eight days in isolation, first at a special centre and then at home, the State Council Prevention and Control Mechanism said.

    That's just for close contacts, right? So positive cases would still quarantine for 7 (or perhaps even more in China).
