>Probe survives 500 Earth days

China's Chang'e-4 probe has survived 500 Earth days on the far side of the moon.

The lander and the rover Yutu-2 have resumed work for the 18th lunar day on the far side of the moon after "sleeping" during the extremely cold night.

The lander woke up at 3:25 am Sunday (Beijing time), and the rover awoke at 11:53 am Saturday. Both are in normal working order, according to the Lunar Exploration and Space Program Center of the China National Space Administration.

The Chang'e-4 probe, launched on Dec 8, 2018, made the first-ever soft landing on the far side of the moon on Jan 3, 2019.

A lunar day equals 14 days on Earth, and a lunar night is the same length.

The Chang'e-4 probe switches to dormant mode during the lunar night due to the lack of solar power.

>Latest US curb on Huawei

China's Ministry of Commerce urged the US government on Sunday to immediately stop abusing export control measures and pledged to take all necessary measures to protect the legitimate and lawful interests of Chinese businesses.

The comments came after the US Department of Commerce issued new rules, due to take effect in September, that will block Chinese tech giant Huawei and its suppliers from using US technologies to design and manufacture semiconductors.

"It is a violation of market principles and fair competition. The US government, in the name of national security, used national power and abused export control measures to crack down on specific companies in other countries," the Ministry of Commerce said in a statement on its website.

"The US government is ignoring the basic rules of international economics and trade and it also poses a serious threat to the safety of the global industrial and supply chain, said the ministry.

>Masks outdoors no longer required

The health authorities said people are not required to wear masks when in safe social distance.

Feng Luzhao, researcher with the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said at a news conference on Sunday that it's not necessary to wear masks at outdoor parks and streets as well as playgrounds that are not crowded.

"We suggest that people don't wear masks when doing exercise, especially during intense exercise," he said.

"People are not required to wear masks at some areas that have low risks of infection or those spaces that have good ventilation and are maintaining social distancing including offices, meeting rooms, construction sites and schools."

Feng, however, added that when people enter enclosed environments or public spaces that have crowds of people such as public transportation vehicles and elevators, they need to wear masks.

"Also, if you feel sick and have symptoms like a cough or fever, wearing a mask is a must to avoid passing your disease to other people," he said.

People are required to wear masks when in the hospital or accompanying family members to see doctors, lowering the risk of getting infected.
