The lunar new year marks the end of the Year of the Ox, and the start of the Year of the Tiger. While the new year celebrations are a big deal, the upcoming Beijing Olympics has led to increased restrictions, dampening celebrations. China has a zero-tolerance COVID policy, which is about to be put to the test, as athletes and numerous people from all around the world have arrived for the Beijing Olympics 2022. Apart from strict COVID testing, the Chinese government has also put several travel restrictions in place. Thus, several individuals haven’t been able to return to their hometowns for the most important Chinese annual holiday.
