Photos and video making rounds on both social and state-run media show that citizens are ready for the test.

People have jammed plane and train tickets and highways to relieve paint-up frustration after being stuck at home for most of this year.

The new cases in Qingdao in the grand scheme of things is a small blip in the number of officially registered coronaviruses in China.

Critics say the number of reports from China is very low – probably appropriate criticism in a country known for covering any bad news.
