China eases some Covid restrictions after protests – BBC News

China has signalled a shift in its Covid policy as it moves to ease some virus restrictions despite high daily case numbers.

Dozens of districts in Shanghai and Guangzhou, cities that have seen rising cases, were released from lockdown measures on Thursday.

The country’s vice-premier also announced the country was facing a “new situation”.

Sun Chunlan said the potential of the virus to cause disease was weakening, more people were vaccinated and experience in containing the virus had increased, according to a Reuters report.

It comes as China is seeing mass protests against its zero-Covid policy.
