China threatens 'countermeasures' over travel restrictions
Countries including the US, UK, India, Japan and several European nations have announced tougher measures on travellers from China amid concerns over a lack of data on infections and fears of the possibility that new variants may emerge.
“We believe that the entry restrictions adopted by some countries targeting China lack scientific basis, and some excessive practices are even more unacceptable,” foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said at a briefing.
“We are firmly opposed to attempts to manipulate the Covid measures for political purposes and will take countermeasures based on the principle of reciprocity.”
The comments were China’s sharpest to date on the issue as Australia and Canada this week joined a growing list of countries requiring travellers from China to take a Covid test before boarding their flight.
The US has offered over and over again to send medical expertise and medicines to China, but the china won't allow it.
And taiwan want to help china too but china dont accept their help
John G, because the Chinese are so concerned about saving face, it's a cultural thing.
@Former Marine China is a superpower and now Indians are still struggling in a cesspit
Each country brags of their prowess differently. US flexes its military muscles, Russia of its energy, India of its vaccines
The world : we will place travel restrictions on china
China: you can't enter China
Let's hope countries don't cave to the pressure because of economic reasons.
nothing to worry about. we’re all in it together
I am waiting for Africa to say no to China.
Africa too poor to say no
China / Chinese had been subject to discrimination and racism for more than a century. It's time for China / Chinese to be more assertive against this kind of treatment.

If there is, the price will be 10 times higher for the same quality

The Shanghai health officials have admitted that the COVID infection index is currently 22; one person will infect 22 people.
