Tourists stranded on Chinese resort island see hope after protests

Thousands of tourists stranded for days due to COVID-19 closures on the Chinese resort island of Hainan had a silver lining on Sunday as authorities signaled they could soon return home, but only after local approvals.

Provincial authorities announced that commercial flights for domestic passengers departing from Sanya, a popular tourist spot on the southern tip of Hainan, would begin their orderly resumption on Monday, according to a statement posted on the city’s WeChat account. However, travelers can fly provided there are no new cases in their tour groups and hotels in the past seven days.
