17 May 2021. Everyone is born free and equal in dignity and rights. On the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT), the European Union reaffirms its strong commitment to respect, protect and promote the full and equal enjoyment of human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons.
China has managed to contain the spread of covid-19 cases effectively since the beginning of the lunar year and many restrictions within the country have been lifted. China is planning to vaccinate 40% of its population by June. The vaccination plan now includes foreigners living in China and vaccinations are largely accessible around the country. However, entry to China is still very challenging. Starting from 7 November, China requires a negative Covid-19 test result as well as a negative anti-body test result to be certified in the Chinese Embassy before the trip. Starting from 19 February, travelling to China on a transit flight from Finland is no longer possible. Anyone entering China is subject to a minimum of two weeks’ centralized quarantine in a quarantine hotel.
