Dramatic changes in China’s Covid-policies – what does this mean for China and for the world?

For a long time, China stood out with its very strict Zero Covid-policy and isolation from the world. The policy was challenged by the onset of new variants, popular discontent and serious economic consequences. 

Then recently, China surprised the world by abandoning its zero tolerance and now Covid-19 is spreading rapidly across the country at the same time as China is opening itself up to the world again. 

How can we understand these dramatic policy changes? And what might some of the consequences be, for China and for the rest of the world?
