China’s ‘Zero COVID’ Policy Under The Microscope By Ex-President Of Chinese Dept. Of Infectious Diseases.

On April 23, Miao Xiaohui, a well-known infectious disease expert in Shanghai, reiterated his call for the CCP to end the Zero-COVID policy, which he describes as “completely inconsistent with the basic law of infectious disease pandemics,” as soon as possible in order to reduce secondary disasters and deaths caused by excessive pandemic prevention. Miao was the vice president and director of the Department of Infectious Diseases at Changzheng Hospital, which is linked with China’s Second Military Medical University, and he was involved in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the SARS outbreak that erupted in the country in 2003. Miao argued in his essay that the Zero-COVID policy is ineffectual and lacks scientific support. He added that all neighborhoods in Shanghai have been shut for 23 to 27 days, which is “totally contradictory with the basic rules and intervention…

Infections have been apparently identified in half of Beijing inhabitants, a likely indication to boost its Zero-COVID containment pace and lockdown like Shanghai. Local people are trying to gather food and supplies in fear of starving during the approaching lockdown. The epidemic situation in Beijing is “serious and complex,” staging “at a critical point,” said the municipal epidemic prevention and control office on April 25, announcing that in just three days, from April 22 -25, the COVID-19 virus expanded from the Shunyi and Chaoyang districts to the Fangshan, Changping, Fengtai, Xicheng, Yanqing, and Tongzhou districts, covering half of Beijing.

China’s Zero COVID Policy Is Furthering Supply Chain Issues.

Financial analysts are concerned that lockdown measures imposed by Shenzhen and Shanghai, two of China’s largest cities and significant ports, could exacerbate global supply chains and inflationary pressures. From March 14 to 20, Shenzhen’s 17.5 million citizens were subjected to a citywide curfew. Shanghai officials placed a lockdown on the city’s 26 million plus citizens on March 28 with no notice, just a week after Shenzhen was reopened. Zhang Jinglun, a financial expert based in North America, said in an interview with The Epoch Times on March 30 that Shenzhen and Shanghai are both important port cities in China, and that their closures will inevitably disrupt local production and logistics, as well as worsen the global supply chain crisis. The pandemic shut down Shenzhen’s Yantian Port for about a month in June of last year, resulting in a backlog of…

Citizens Of Hong Kong Are Experiencing Record Breaking Mental Illness Rates Due To ‘Zero COVID’ Measures.

Yeung, a Hong Kong resident, waited for 13 hours in the cold, wet weather outside a hospital in the city’s eastern district with his 3-year-old daughter, who had a high fever, before being admitted for COVID-19 therapy. Her fever had subsided by the time they were able to enter, and she didn’t require medical assistance. Despite this, the 42-year-old utility worker was forced to spend four nights at the hospital without a bed since he and his daughter were not allowed to leave. They were subsequently detained for another nine days at a federal detention center. Not becoming sick caused him the most anxiety, but leaving his wife and 22-month-old son at home alone with COVID-19 was worse. “My wife went through a lot. Because of the difficulty of caring for the infant and the lack of time to rest,…

Radical Left Wing Media Outlets Encourage The CCPs ‘Zero Covid’ Measures.

China is subjected to intermittent lockdowns and limitations as a result of Beijing’s “zero-COVID” policy, which is supported by official media as well as certain Western media. “The zero-COVID policy of China is now being recognized by US media outlets. “Is it too late for them?” says the narrator. Some American media outlets are backing the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) continuous lockdowns and restrictions, claimed China’s state-run daily tabloid Global Times. The Economist claims that sticking to the CCP’s “dynamic” zero-COVID strategy is a test of loyalty. Moreover, several American journalists have chastised the West for failing to follow the CCP’s lead. NPR released a piece titled “What the US can Learn from China’s Response to COVID Infections,” which proposes that instead of relaxing restrictions, the US should follow China’s lead in its ongoing zero-COVID policy. “This technique has produced…
