Sure, there will be some, but I very much believe that demand will be low compared to last year this time.
I won't be so sure. China just ended a months-long nationwide quarantine, and tourists are flocking to domestic attractions in droves. Huangshan, a scenic UNESCO site, received humongous crowds after re-opening. Many movie cinemas, amusement parks etc. recently were also ordered closed after re-opening due to fears that another outbreak might occur.

Maybe most of those guys drove or took the bus rather than flew, but the point is that when people have been cooped up for a long time, there's a big build-up of urge to go SOMEWHERE after things "go back to normal". When the government lifts our stay-at-home rules, I'll bet that many attractions will be, if not as swamped as Huangshan, quite busy.
