Chinese health authorities are set to hold a news conference on Saturday on Covid-19 prevention, according to a notice saying that officials from the National Bureau of Disease Control and Prevention would attend. No other details were immediately available.
China’s National Health Commission did not immediately respond to a faxed request for comment.
Travel in and out of China has plunged as the country pursues “dynamic Covid zero” policies that include mandatory quarantine and RT-PCR tests for travelers upon arrival. International flights to and from China are at a small fraction of pre-Covid levels.
