DW News published this video item, entitled “China enters ‘new stage’ in coronavirus approach, easing restrictions | DW News” – below is their description.

China’s controversial zero COVID strategy seems to be receding, as officials signal eased restrictions following unprecedented protests in several major cities.

In the manufacturing hub of Guangzhou, at least seven districts lifted temporary lockdowns on Wednesday, including in Haizhu, which witnessed protests recently. Restrictions were also eased in the central city of Chongqing.

China is also set to allow some people who tested positive for COVID-19 to quarantine at home, according to a Reuters report on Thursday which cited two sources with knowledge of the matter.
