China makes COVID-19 anal swabs mandatory for foreigners

NEW YORK POST — China has made anal COVID-19 swabs mandatory for all foreign travelers arriving in the country, a report said Wednesday.

The government has claimed that such tests provide a higher degree of accuracy than other screening methods for the virus, the Times UK reported.

As part of the new travel requirement, there will be testing hubs in Beijing and Shanghai airports, the outlet reported.

Li Tongzeng, a respiratory disease medic, said the anal swabs are better because virus traces stay in fecal samples longer than they do in the nose or throat, state media reported.

The move comes after Japan asked China to stop performing the exams on its citizens when they enter the country because the swabs cause mental anguish.

“Some Japanese reported to our embassy in China that they received anal swab tests, which caused a great psychological pain,” Katsunobu Kato, Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, told a news conference. […]

5 Comments on China makes COVID-19 anal swabs mandatory for foreigners

  1. The swab with which the Chinese shove up your arse, is in reality the Chinese middle finger to the rest of the world.

  2. This will do wonders for China’s already thriving tourist market. Used to be “what happens in the Forbidden City stays in the Forbidden City”…guess this new policy is an indication of a change.

  3. This rectally intrusive diagnostic tool will insure racial purity among the communist Chinese since it is unlikely any other nationalities would submit to this humiliating torture just to see ‘the great wall’, etc.
