China reopens the border with its special administrative region of Hong Kong for the first time in three years, accelerating the unwinding of its stringent zero-Covid rules

After three years of self-imposed isolation, China has eased border restrictions, dismantling the final pillar of a zero-Covid policy that had shielded citizens from the virus but also cut them off from the rest of the world.

Travellers crossing between Hong Kong and mainland China, however, are still required to show a negative Covid-19 test taken within the last 48 hours — a measure China has protested when imposed by other countries. The policy had a huge impact on the world's second-biggest economy and generated resentment throughout society that led to nationwide protests just before it was eased.

China's borders remain largely sealed, however, with only a fraction of the previous number of international flights arriving at major airports.
