The problem, founder Lin Haiping says, is that consumers would not regain their confidence in a hurry, as China’s pursuit of its “zero-COVID” strategy, against a global trend of living with the virus, has upended their lives.

Reuters was first to report that India’s central bank is prepared to sell a sixth of its foreign exchange reserves to defend the rupee against a rapid depreciation after it plumbed record lows in recent weeks. The rupee has lost over 7% of its value in 2022 and weakened past the psychological level of 80 per U.S. dollar on Tuesday.
