I guess facts donít matter. I try to provide verifiable information and facts. Back to personal opinion masked as facts. Carry on.

China makes COVID 19 Anal Swabs Mandatory for Foreigners. Ummm. It was kind of funny before. Now itís starting to get real. Unless thereís a really clear exception for aircrew, this will get ugly.

Our closed loop system allows us not to test in CAN. No butt stuff for us

No Butt Stuff is the Right Stuff. Speaking of closed-loop or at least in the near vicinity regarding the sh*tstorm discussion earlier - Howís HKG doing? Flushing, half flushed, fully flushed? Half Base, No Base, touch Base... former Base...

Not a Fed Ex pilot but I regularly fly into China from Hong Kong, sadly. The Gloria Hotel in CAN is still a dump with cockroaches and garbage piling up high as they donít dispose of it daily as itís considered Bio waste. The food is almost unbearable. I luckily have a Chinese friend who orders fresh fruit and vegetables for us to survive the 14 day quarantines. This is my 6th long quarantine since the Pandemic began. The biggest toll is the mental drain and caged animal feelings you get in here. Guangzhou has lifted the additional 7 day quarantine requirement but many cities like Beijing still have that in place. In the past we would move the final additional 7 days and stay in the Crowne Plaza. A big step up but weíre forced to eat just the hotel food. The Gloria allows outside food orders, the Crowne only allows packages. There is no alcohol allowed in the Gloria so if you want it then bring it. I have a small hot pot I cook veggies easy to boil like Kale and Broccoli and eat lots of salad. They give us 3 nasal COVID tests during the 14 days. I think Beijing and a few other cities now requiring the anal swabs, not here in Guangzhou so far. We normally stay about 60-90 days in Guangzhou and fly domestic trips, Iím on a VIP Corporate gig based in Hong Kong. We then go back to Hong Kong which just makes us wait at the airport for our COVID test results, normally about 2 hours until we get released. This is for travel from China to Hong Kong only and other places you go to the Sky City or another company contracted quarantine hotel. China is now giving vaccines to their citizens and have discussed a vaccine passport but knowing China Iím sure they will only initially allow those vaccinated with the SinoVac the ability to travel with that vaccine passport. All Chinese pilots have received the Sinovac but they quarantine for 14 days if they leave China unless itís a ground stop thru flight. I think they are using 8 pilots on many of these long haul flights to avoid the long downtime but any high risk country such as the US is a mandatory quarantine. Just a little perspective from someone flying into China regularly. My advice is avoid this part of the world and their crazy BS tactics until vaccine passports become widely accepted and utilised.

I asked the Handlers in CAN the other day about the new Anal swab and they had NO IDEA this was being done. I think its the higher risk cities doing this. Still odd they had no idea, as the rest of the world knows.

Not odd at all for the Middle Kingdom. You have to know what news sources they are fed and what biased and propaganda news they solely receive. Remember, itís a great day in China. Just click your heels five times and repeat that and you might just wind up in a great place.
