China Sanya tourism growth is over.
If Covid zero policy persists, people will avoid to get trapped in lockdown (see below 👇) and not travel there
If China opens up borders, people will flock to Thailand and bypass Sanya
Either way the growth story is over
This could be the final blow for Shanghai retail business. (See 👇IKEA deportation)

China has 1.4 bn people, most of which struggle to make it at the end of the month.

And just like that, this morning we are free to go out!
After 3 days of a supposed 7 days quarantine!
Only 3 floors remained sealed at the moment (below and above close contact floor)
Rules are made up by the day, someone arbitrarily decides our freedom…..
7 neighbors been taken away this morning just because they were on the elevator with a guy who later tested positive.
This happened on July 13th.
July 16th are taken away without symptoms and negative.
And we are now all closed for 7 days.
After 3 years I still don’t get it
How much Covid economy is contributing to China GDP growth?
It seems that the Covidnomics has become too big to dismantled so easily.
Seems Shanghai is becoming the Covid Valley with all the testing companies and even a dedicated industrial park!
