China has had rigorous entry requirements in place since early 2020 with mandatory and lengthy quarantine at government-mandated hotels, including pre and post-arrival Covid-19 PCR-RT tests.,,China now requires rather invasive anal swabs, performed at the airport, from all international arrivals. According to China, the virus is better identifiable from stool samples than from nose or throat swabs.
,The anal swab is performed by inserting a moistened cotton ball into your rectum five centimeters deep and then rotating few times.,Conclusion,What wouldn’t we be willing to do in the fight to try to prevent the spread of Covid-19? For me, at least, it would be forced anal swabs at airports around the world, and especially in China.,There must be better ways to identify whether you have an on-going Covid-19 infection rather than doing these very invasive anal swabs?,
