Welcome to China!
The Chinese authorities has promised to cease utilizing anal swabs on American diplomats to check for COVID-19 after Washington complained that the apply was undignified, the U.S. State Department stated.
“The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it,” a State Department spokesperson instructed VICE World News on Wednesday.
The spokesperson stated Beijing had assured Washington that the check was given “in error” and that diplomatic personnel have been exempt from the check, which was necessary for incoming vacationers in some components of China.
“We have instructed staff to decline this test if it is asked of them, as was done in the past.”
