China’s Borders Reopen: Are We Prepared?

China's borders are reopening soon and this is happening shortly after they reopened their economy and saw a surge in Covid-19 cases. There have been some responses to ban inbound China travellers, while some have said that this is irresponsible. We discuss what this means for us, and whether health checks for all tourists coming in should be made mandatory.
