(editor’s note in green)


To control the spread of the epidemic and to maximize the control of the source of infection, and to cut off the channels of transmission, Tianjin will comprehensively implement measures for centralized isolation of oversea incomers passengers.

Beginning at 00:00 on March 18th, except for those who have suspicious symptoms such as fever (those will be sent directly in hospital), all persons (foreigners or Chinese citizen) who enter the country from any place should be transferred to a centralized observation point for a 14-day centralized isolation medical observation. 

They will be transferred to the centralized observation point of the area where they live by a special car.


And stay under observation by professional medical staff with regular health monitoring and provided with basic living services to identify any problems in time.


In special cases, home observation can be conducted after strict evaluation. (if anyone as more information about special cases please share in comment)

Short-term immigration businessmen who come to Tianjin and are negative to viral nucleic acid tests will need to implement health monitoring and limiting business activities (after the 14 days quarantaine need to keep limited activities for non-resident, ie: business visa holders)


The costs of isolation medical observation will be bear by the overseas returnee. 


Those who do not obey the centralized quarantine medical observation or misinform authorities, conceal illness and cause the spread of the epidemic will be held accountable according to law and regulations and incorporated into the social credit system.

500/day for 14 days is an overkill, especially when people aren’t getting their salaries due to the outbreak and stingy employers.
