US to relax Covid testing restrictions for travelers from China

By Blessing Enechojo Abu

The US had planned to relax Covid-19 testing restrictions for travelers from China starting from Friday, 10th March 2023. This is due to the reduction in Covid cases and deaths in China.

The US had earlier announced that travelers from China be required to show a negative Covid test result before flying to the country, as a result of a surge in the cases after Beijing’s easy off Covid restrictions.

The latest announcement comes after a US Department of Energy assessment that the virus likely emerged from a laboratory accident in China and placed further strain on relations between the US and China.
