The COVID-19 virus first began infecting locals in China in late 2019. Despite this, the country has kept cases low over the past year.

Eric Burklin of China Partner says for Chinese Christians, things have begun to look more normal. “The good news is we’re hearing most recently a lot of the seminaries and Bible schools have reopened. Students are back in class face to face. Churches have reopened nationwide. There are still some pockets here and there, where [the government is] still somewhat more careful.”

Chinese Christians in the pandemic

Burklin says Chinese Christians have reflected the love of Jesus in how they have cared for their communities during the pandemic. “They are people who are very devout, who love their country, and who respect their authorities. I think as a result of that they really manage the pandemic quite well.”
