Qingdao, located in the southeastern part of Shandong Province, is a beautiful seaside city with clear air and an enchanting sea view. Like most places in China, Qingdao has reduced its level of emergency response to the COVID-19 epidemic and encouraged residents and businesses to start returning to normalcy.
Millions of Chinese visited reopened tourist sites as temperature checks and social distancing remain in force. Normal work life led to more cars back on the road, and more people flocked to shopping malls, accelerating China's economic recovery.
