China’s border has been open for about two weeks.

Some countries set up restrictions for travelers from China, such as COVID-19 testing before flight boarding, waste water testing for planes from China, and quarantine rules for passengers who test positive after arriving.

Other nations have taken a different approach by giving arrivals from China a free pass—New Zealand and some Asian countries are among them.

Infection and death numbers are on a slight downtrend in New Zealand.

Over in Asia, despite crowds of Chinese tourists pouring into Thailand, officials have seen no significant change in COVID-19 numbers compared to when China’s borders were sealed.

It’s only been 11 days since China’s reopening and Beijing is refusing to share virus sequencing and many other information with the world.
