China will no longer flag people who have been, or even just passed by a mid- or high-risk cities or areas in the past 14 days on their digital travel card, according to a statement from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on Wednesday.

The previous measure was to put an asterisk mark in cities and areas announced in mid- or high-risks on travelers' digital travel history in the past 14 days which was often used as proof for local authorities to impose curbs or quarantines to the visitors.

It heavily affected the travelers and their willingness to take a trip as their travel card can be marked traced back to the 14-day history – even if they haven't been in contact with the infection or they just drive through the cities that reported new infections days later.

The policy change aims to facilitate travel and boost economic development, the statement said.

The decision has become a hot topic among the internet users on Weibo as many people see such change as a good signal for the society to gradually transform back to normal. While some worry about how the new policy may be executed in different cities.

Many people already responded to the news as the search for flight tickets jumped by 50 percent in 30 minutes after the announcement, according to Chinese travel agency Qunar.com. The search for train ticket has surged 1.5 times more than before.
