Thousands stranded as ‘China’s Hawaii’ locks down – BBC News August 7, 2022

I saw this recently on BBC News – Thousands stranded as ‘China’s Hawaii’ locks down – BBC News August 7, 2022: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/thousands-stranded-as-chinas-hawaii-locks-down/ar-AA10oS3C?li=BBnb7Kz/. Longer article.

More than 80,000 tourists have been left stranded in a popular resort in China after a coronavirus outbreak sparked a lockdown.

Authorities cancelled all flights and trains from Sanya, known as “China’s Hawaii”, on Saturday, a day after 263 positive cases were confirmed.

Travellers must now present five negative PCR tests over seven days before being allowed to leave.

China is the only major economy to still follow a “zero Covid” policy.

The country has recorded fewer than 15,000 deaths since the pandemic began, according to Johns Hopkins University. However, there have been concerns about the impact of the strict rules, including mass testing and local lockdowns, on the economy.
