China will set up a "separation line" on the peak of Mount Everest to avoid possible COVID-19 infections by climbers from virus-hit Nepal, state media reported, after dozens were taken ill from the summit's base camp.
While the virus first emerged in China in late 2019, it has largely been brought under control in the country through a series of strict lockdowns and border closures.
More than 30 sick climbers were evacuated from base camp on the Nepalese side of the world's highest peak in recent weeks as Nepal faces a deadly second wave of COVID-19, raising fears that the virus might ruin a bumper climbing season. Mount Everest straddles the China-Nepal border, with the north slope belonging to China.

Wear masks on Everest and interfere with the oxygen supply.
I need a geography lesson.
What does China have to do with Mt. Everest?
Nepal is an independent state with a federal government at its head. Meanwhile, Tibet is classified as an autonomous region or a Chinese province. Nepal has one form of government, while Tibet has two –the Chinese government and a government in exile headed by the Dalai Lama.
Yet another appropriate application of “Chyna is ASSHO!”
Half of it is in China.
Everest summit attempts can be tried from either China or Nepal as the mountain straddles the border between the two. From what I have read, the Nepalese approach and base camp are the much more popular method of attacking the mountain.
Now that is a serious glossing-over and understatement.
“What does China have to do with Mt. Everest?”
They bought it recently. Just kidding, the other side of Everest, the north side, is officially in Tibet.
Build a wall.
” raising fears that the virus might ruin a bumper climbing season.”
Heaven forbid! “Priorities” /s
Tibet, NOT China!
China didn’t “buy” it, they just “TOOK” it.
“China makes no claim to sovereign rights over Tibet as a result of its military subjugation and occupation of Tibet following the country’s invasion in 1949-1950. Instead, it bases its claim to Tibet solely on its theory that Tibet has been an integral part of China for many centuries.”
Commie dictatorship and theocracy led by a former kidnapped child, such a lovely choice.
