During a daily briefing, China’s National Health Commission spokesperson, Mi Feng said that everyone reentering China, whether foreigner or local will have to follow the same quarantine measures. This still applies to those who have already received the vaccine. Mi Feng highlighted that vaccines are highly effective. Even so, after vaccination a small percentage of individuals could still be infected or infect others.

目前许多国家已经开始大规模新冠疫苗接种。请问,接种完疫苗的外国人或者华人从国外来中国,还需要隔离吗?具体的政策是哪些?谢谢。2021-02-10 15:39:47

米锋:

谢谢你的提问。事实上,在之前的联防联控机制发布会上曾经对类似的问题进行了回应,目前按照中方的规定,来华人员无论是外国人还是中国人,入境后仍然需要按照规定进行相应的隔离,现在国际社会也正在推进新冠疫苗的接种工作,中国的远端防控措施也将结合新冠疫苗的接种因素给予考虑。我想强调的是,接种疫苗以后,大多数人会产生抗体,能够有效的预防发病,但是仍然有少数受种者可能不产生抗体或者抗体的滴度不够,仍有可能被感染,甚至有的还可能成为传染源,所以建议即使接种了疫苗,仍然需要按照目前的防控措施、防控规定来进行相应的处理。谢谢。2021-02-10 15:40:34
