The Economist: "The Communist Party announced the start of a long-expected purge of their ranks…It is remarkable that such a campaign is deemed necessary. After he took over…in 2012 Mr Xi launched China’s toughest battle against corruption in decades."

“China and the United States should remove all barriers to travel between the two countries if the United States achieves herd immunity for COVID-19 with 90% of its population vaccinated, potentially by August, a Chinese epidemiologist has said.”

Replying to @ehundman: Notably, no mention of how slow China’s own vaccine rollout is.
