Rome airport authorities take strict measures in dealing with arrivals from China

There was some skepticism about what might happen when a country of 1.4 billion people decided to halt its strict policy against the Corona virus, which was known as “Zero Covid”.

Due to the poor level of vaccination and low immunity in China, the infection rate has increased, at a time when it is about to lift restrictions on its citizens’ travel abroad.

Therefore, some countries are concerned about the increase in the number of their infections, and have begun to impose some restrictions, such as testing for HIV infection, on those coming from China.

The increase in the number of cases in China was not due to a new strain, but mainly due to similar types of the Omicron strain.
