In an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, the Chinese capital Beijing closed dozens of metro stations and bus lines on Wednesday.
According to the latest projections and statistics, the Chinese regime’s unrelenting struggle against the coronavirus, which is thought to have arisen in Wuhan city in late 2019, is weakening its growth and affecting multinational enterprises investing there.
Late on Tuesday, the central city of Zhengzhou, home to 12.6 million people and a Foxconn factory, declared work-from-home and other COVID-19 restrictions for the following week, joining dozens of other major towns under some sort of lockdown.
According to service providers, the capital shut down more than 60 metro stations, or around 15% of the network, as well as 158 bus lines. The Chaoyang area, the heart of Beijing’s outbreak, has the majority of the stopped stations and routes.
With scores of new cases being reported every day, the Chinese government is hoping that widespread testing can identify and isolate the virus before it spreads.
COVID-19 data from China is difficult to verify since the Chinese state habitually suppresses or modifies data.
Schools, restaurants, gyms, and entertainment facilities, as well as several businesses and residential structures in high-risk locations, have been shuttered in the city of 22 million people.
Workers in safety gear were observed erecting a two-meter high blue metal wall around a residential complex, with a sign at the gate stating “Entry only.” This is a disturbing indication for Beijing residents. No way out.”
After three screenings last week, 12 of the 16 Beijing districts underwent the second of three sets of examinations this week.
The lockdown in Shanghai appears to have no end in sight.
Most residents of mainland China’s largest metropolis are still unable to leave their housing compounds after more than a month.
Since Sunday, some people have benefitted from a gradual lessening of safeguards, with often only one member of a home being permitted out for a brief stroll and food shopping.
The severe seclusion has driven sporadic outbreaks of rage, with social media users playing a cat-and-mouse game with censors to keep proof of the misery flowing.
Some have turned to blockchain technology to prevent the erasure of recordings, images, and artwork related to the issue.
In a critical year in which Chinese President Xi Jinping is poised to win a third term, such acts of dissent are embarrassing for the ruling Communist Party.
The regime’s zero-COVID policy is affecting domestic spending and manufacturing production, disrupting vital global supply chains and reducing sales for some of the world’s most well-known companies, like Apple, Kering’s Gucci, and Taco Bell.
COVID-19, according to Capital Economics, has extended to areas that produce 40% of China’s output and 80% of its exports.
“Recent mobility trends show that China’s development momentum worsened sharply in April,” Fitch Ratings wrote in a note, “with traffic congestion, subway passenger volume, and other high-frequency indicators at their worst since… early 2020.”
Fitch downgraded China’s GDP prediction for 2022 from 4.8 percent to 4.3 percent, considerably below the stated 5.5 percent objective.
Starbucks Corp. reported a 23 percent drop in sales in China, where the company has aggressively expanded in recent years, overshadowing a 12 percent increase in North America.
Foxconn confirmed on Wednesday that production in Zhengzhou will continue.
After Shanghai went into lockdown in March, several factories were forced to close. While some businesses have begun to reopen, rehiring personnel and coping with clogged supply networks has been tough.
International commerce has also been disrupted.
A quarter of the worldwide container ship fleet is stranded in ports, according to Royal Bank of Canada analysts.
344 ships were awaiting berth at Shanghai’s port, up 34% over the previous month. They claim that shipping goods from a Chinese warehouse to one in the United States takes 74 days longer than usual.
There is a correlation that can be made between the Chinese Communist Party and the Centers For Disease Control. And that is the CCP underreports its numbers to hide the fact that there is obvious falsification of statistics used solely as an excuse to exercise the incomprehensible power that they hold over their people. Not long ago there was civil unrest running rampant through China, conveniently enough ‘Zero COVID’ policy seems to have quieted down all dissidents.
As far as the CDC goes, they have to play at a different game; By over-reporting COVID-19 contraction and death statistics, they’re able to coerce citizens into believing that the situation is much more dire than it actually is. Why you might ask? Because we live in a free democratic society that doesn’t require us to cater to our governments every whim. We’re being lied to, it’s as simple as that. Once you come to terms with it, you may have a shot at seeing the next steps being taken by Klaus Schwab and his many neo-communist constituents.
The CCP’s bellicose behavior is at an all time high trending upward, and most people are completely unaware of their crimes against humanity all together. They’re too busy distracting themselves from the despotic globalist elite manufactured society around them. Who knows, perhaps in the coming months Fauci and his constituents will be brought to justice and the truth will prevail. I’d only say that now because the omicron variant being less virulent and more transmissible inevitably means COVID is endemic in the eyes of the government. This still gives politicians and the CDC the ability to wiggle into our lives for the coming years.
One thing is for certain, and it’s that Xi will not stop his human rights violations without direct confrontation. Whoever conducts business with China are either inexcusably misinformed, or are actively showing support for the Chinese regimes crimes against humanity. Hosea 4:6 says: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
According to authorities and local media, Hong Kong’s national security officers arrested a senior journalist and former contributing writer for the now-defunct liberal media organization Stand News on Monday for alleged sedition.
Several significant media institutions, including the Apple Daily newspaper and the Stand News online news portal, have been raided by police and closed down as part of a crackdown on the media based on a sedition statute dating from the British colonial era, as well as a Beijing-imposed national security law.
The national security department of the police force arrested a 54-year-old man for “conspiracy to print seditious writings” and detained him for additional investigation, according to local police.
Allan Au, a seasoned journalist and academic at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, was identified by local media as the individual who penned columns for newspapers such as Ming Pao and the now-defunct Apple Daily.
Sedition is not included in a broad national security statute enacted by Beijing in June 2020, which punishes terrorism, collusion with foreign forces, subversion, and secession with life sentences.
However, subsequent court decisions have allowed authorities to use the new legislation’s authority to invoke rarely used colonial-era sedition provisions.
When asked about Au’s detention, Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said at a press conference that she would not comment on specific cases, but that press freedom was protected by the city’s mini-constitution, the Basic Law.
The Hong Kong Journalists’ Association voiced “grave worry” at the arrest, warning that it could “further erode Hong Kong’s press freedom.”
Au was a former Knight Fellow at Stanford University and was recognized for his critical writings.
“I used to worry if I could keep writing till 2047,” Au wrote in one of his final published columns, referring to the Chinese regime’s constitutional guarantee under the Basic Law to maintain Hong Kong’s freedoms and autonomy for another 50 years until 2047.
“We haven’t made it to 2047 yet, yet 2047 has arrived right in front of our eyes,” Au wrote.
Au’s detention adds to the growing list of journalists who have been targeted since the security bill was passed. In December, two former top editors of Stand News were accused with conspiring to publish and/or reproduce seditious materials.
No one man can make sense of this elaborate illusion cast over the common man of society, but collectively we can point out each limitation forced upon us and bring it forward as an injustice to the public. In Matthew 10:34 Jesus says: “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.” We’re meant to go down preaching the gospel and guiding others to salvation. This could be considered the bravest task a man or woman of faith could undertake, but make no mistake it will bear fruit in the kingdom of heaven.
It should come as no surprise to anyone who pays attention to global politics that this is happening. However, one could speculate and say that tensions across the board are running higher than ever for the Chinese Communist Party. The only buffer between confrontation and continuation of these heinous acts is the distraction of the Ukrainian crisis we’re seeing today. Something has got to give, America is no longer able to turn a blind eye from persecution due to the rapid spread of information in this digital age. The question remains, who will stop the CCP from committing further violations against human rights, and how much longer until that takes place?
1 Peter 4:12-14 says: “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.”
