Editorial : The Golden Week

【明報專訊】The eight-day Mid-Autumn and National Day Golden Week holidays began yesterday (October 1), the first golden week holidays in the real sense in mainland China since the outbreak of COVID-19. An upsurge in travel everywhere has been reported. To a certain extent, however, this golden week is just a test. It is not only a stress test of the safety of people travelling together intensively under the normalisation of pandemic prevention, but also a test of how successfully the travel industry can resume business and production and explore new ways of operation after the pandemic.
