China unveiled 10 new measures to optimize its COVID prevention and control strategy. These changes were made based on the facts that the Omicron variant is less virulent, over 90 percent of the Chinese population is fully vaccinated, and the Chinese health workers have sufficient experience treating the illness.
But how will the COVID situation in China pan out after these adjustments? And what can ordinary people do to protect themselves? Tune in to the latest episode of Science Talk to find out.
Experts said the changes mark a turning point in China`s fight against the novel coronavirus. This is because the country has the capacity and resilience to optimize its epidemic measures to reflect the changing challenges posed by current variants.
According to the world health Organization, more than 642 million people around the world has been infected by COVID-19,resulting in over 6.62 million deaths. Despite having 1.4 billion people, a massive elderly population, and a relative lack of medical resources compared to developed countries, China has one of the lowest number of infections and COVID related deaths in the world.
China is one of the few major economies to see positive growth in 2020 and by 2021the size of its economy had reached over 114 trillion yuan.
Generally, we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel though much work still remains.
China`s Changing epidemic policy isn`t to relax all measures but a recalibration to tackle new challenges. The objective of future COVID-19 control should focus on managing the disease, treating patients, and protecting the vulnerable population.
And most importantly, get vaccinated, get boosters. Protecting yourself is protecting your family and your community.
