– Ending harsh COVID policies allowed for increased personal freedom and economic activity. – It demonstrated China’s confidence in controlling the pandemic. – It provided relief to citizens and businesses from strict lockdown measures. – China’s approach showed flexibility in adapting to changing circumstances. – Lifting restrictions could have encouraged tourism and domestic spending.

– The struggle to rebound may indicate that ending harsh COVID policies was premature. – The Delta variant and other factors may have hindered China’s recovery.
– The country’s strict measures may have suppressed the true impact of the pandemic, which became more evident after lifting restrictions.
– The economic damage caused by the initial lockdowns may have been underestimated.
