In a statement issued on August 11, the Ministry has rescinded the travel advisory, which advised against any travel to Shanghai that is not strictly necessary, reports.

“The background for the travel council was the extensive closure of society and the introduction of strict infection prevention measures. Shanghai has now reopened, and the situation in the city is roughly similar to the situation in other parts of China,” the statement reads.
