A new Covid outbreak has spread across China, increasing concerns about the country's vulnerability to the extremely contagious Delta form, according to local media.

 

Within a 10-day period, more than 300 cases were discovered.
The outbreak has dominated local headlines, and the country's leading respiratory diseases expert has allegedly expressed significant alarm.

The government has implemented new travel restrictions, although authorities claim that more than 1.6 billion doses have been administered so far, it is unclear how many people in China have been fully vaccinated.

A total of 15 provinces and municipalities have confirmed cases, with 12 of them linked to an outbreak that started in Nanjing, Jiangsu province in eastern China. The Delta variation and the domestic tourism season, according to authorities, are to blame for the spread.

Despite the fact that the number of cases is much lower than in other areas, China is seeing its largest outbreak in months, despite the fact that the virus was mostly contained within its borders last year.

 

Cases first surfaced in Nanjing airport in July, among workers cleaning a jet that had come from Russia. Authorities tested 9.2 million Nanjing residents and placed hundreds of thousands of people under lockdown.

However, during the weekend, the focus shifted to Zhangjiajie, a renowned tourist site in central Hunan province where several of the most recent cases have surfaced. Nanjing visitors were thought to have lately visited the city. Officials from the Ministry of Health have pinpointed a theatre in Zhangjiajie and are now attempting to locate roughly 5,000 people who attended shows and then returned to their home cities.

Right. 

Exactly. Looking back now well over a year, remember all those videos coming out of China with people falling dead in the streets, fake...and they look silly now but they changed the world.

Who knows what else Chinese media, social media bots did to push the narrative and throw the world into this mess. I an NOT saying Covid is not serious but somehow China (who is not using our supposedly superior mRNA vax) has not lost millions of people to this, has kept the factories going to supply the world and at this point looks to be coming out the clear winner in all of this.

Things I would trust more than any official reports out of China on the outbreak of coronavirus.

1. A drink mixed by Bill Cosby

2. Sushi from a gas station.

3. An email from a Nigerian prince telling me I have been left millions

4. Jeffrey Dahmer as my children's baby sitter

5. Tap water in Mexico

6. Loch Ness Monster sightings

7. A middle east man riding a motorcycle and shouting what sounds like a prayer

8. Michael Jackson's doctor

9. A prostate exam from Captain Hook

10.  Breast milk reported to be from Katyln Jenner

I have a friend in the film production business and when he first saw all the vids he said they were productions with actors.  Think about it why would secretive China show the world any of this?  They control all media. I think the answer is obvious.

300 cases in 10 days? An average of 30 cases per day? By U.S. standards, that would be the end of this pandemic -- we're finding over 20,000 new cases per day.

Due to its surveillance apparatus and political structure, China has the strongest contract tracing and isolation system in the world. If anyone can stop an outbreak quickly, it's China.

If you get a chance to see the film 76 Days you can get a glimpse into life under a Chinese lockdown. That could never happen in the West (fingers crossed).

I guess it is obvious to anybody who already has pre-judged and biased opinion of how China operates.

And yet China is "pouring resources" into trying to get an mRNA vaccine. Hmm.  

 

Chinese state media recently quoted Abogen founder Ying Bo saying that third-phase human trials of China’s indigenous mRNA prototype have been underway in Mexico, Columbia and Pakistan since the end of May. 

He added that the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) Academy of Military Medical Sciences in Beijing had also lent talent and poured in resources into the project.

Pre judged? They are a communist totalitarian regime that crushes dissent and enslaves people in re-education camps, while seeding foreign universities with spies who steal intellectual property. 

 

They don't allow any foreign companies to operate inside their country without severe restrictions. 

 

All the while the idiots in the wto allow them to retain developing nation status. 

 

And add in the heavy handed tactics of constantly threatening their Asian neighbors, illegal fishing, dredging up an creating a massive island to put weapons on it, mass production of precursor chemicals shipped to Mexico drug cartels for fentanyl and methamphetamines. 

 

Add to that the belt and road initiatives that are bribing and their way through Africa and Latin America. 

 

What on earth is there to pre judge? 

 

What planet are you on?

You are just quoting prejudiced and brainwashed opinion and statements, yet have an diametrically opposite opinions in methods exactly like you claim the Chinese do. In fact you have just proven by your diatribe you are no better , or worse, than them rather identical but at opposite poles. The world order is changing so you had better get used to it as history always repeats itself.

Brainwashed? 

 

Where on earth do you get your information from? The south China post? 

 

You would have to be blind and deaf not to recognize what the ccp is and represents.

Right, ok. The Chinese are a great and have the integrity to help the entire world be a better place for all people. 

 

Is that the dystopia that you prefer to think exists?

Not at all. I would rather look upon the issue with a balanced outlook rather then one completely biased to the left or right. I do believe however that America's time as the world's policemen and strongest economy is coming to an end.

Perhaps, if the weak democrats stay in control, that end will be accelerated by design and intent. 

But I don't think they will be in control much longer. But they are sure going to try and shove the country into the abyss as much as they can get away with.

Are you a member of the CCP?

Do you wear blinkers?

Your mate Li JP is another Hitler in the making and he butchered millions of innocent people who had a balanced outlook and just wanted a peaceful life and didn't care who was the policeman and had the strongest economy. LiJP wants the strongest economy, he openly admits it, WHY??  He thinks Chinese should be the dominant race in the world. Hang on that's racist just like Hitler with his superior race. wake up.
