The chief epidemiologist of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Wu Zunyou proposed that China and the US should work jointly to lift mutual travel restrictions in August or September when the US is expected to reach herd immunity, suggesting the two countries seek mutual recognition of vaccinations and give priority to official, business travel and overseas study.
 

Wu saying that the free travel plan between China and the US should proceed in three steps.
 

First, China and the US should mutually recognize vaccinations in the other country and limit free travel to only those who have been vaccinated.
 

Second, free travel should then be given to official and business travel and overseas study.
 

Third, all travel types should be covered.
 

China is the safest country in the world in terms of COVID-19 prevention, with no community transmission reported and the US is likely to vaccinate around 80 percent of its population by June and 90 percent by August, reaching herd immunity, Wu said on Monday at an online forum about US-China collaboration on COVID-19 prevention and treatment organized by the Washington-based Brookings Institution and Tsinghua University in Beijing.
 

"If that is the case and if we could remove all political barriers, just based on science, the two countries could possibly be the first two countries to lift travel restrictions with each other," Wu said.
 

中美自由旅行分3步

3月1日,清华大学和美国布鲁金斯学会共同举办云论坛,来自中美公共卫生和医学领域的顶尖专家,就中美疫情合作、疫苗开发分配、疫情下的跨境旅行和贸易等议题展开讨论。
 

中国疾病预防控制中心流行病学首席专家吴尊友在论坛中提出,中美应共同努力,或能在8月或9月互相解除旅行限制,成为全球最先采取这一措施的国家。
 

3月2日,吴尊友进一步解释说,中美之间的自由旅行计划应该分3步进行:首先,两国要互相承认对方的疫苗接种,开放自由旅行限于接种过新冠疫苗的人。(在此基础上)第二步是对公务、商务旅行以及出国留学的公民开放自由旅行;第三步则是涵盖所有类型的旅行。
