Figure this one out.


A man who completed 21 days of mandatory quarantine upon returning to China from overseas has been identified as the likely source of a new outbreak, raising questions over the sustainability of the country's stringent zero-COVID-19 strategy.


The fresh outbreak in Fujian province on China's southeastern coast has infected more than 60 people, including 15 elementary school pupils. It emerged just two weeks after China contained its worst coronavirus flareup in more than a year, highlighting the increasing challenge posed by the highly contagious Delta variant -- even to a country with some of the world's strictest, most far-reaching containment measures.


The latest infections were first detected in two young brothers during a routine COVID-19 test at a elementary school in Xianyou county, Putian city, on Thursday. Another student and three parents tested positive the next day, the Putian municipal government said at a press conference Friday.

Well, their strategy is working. It isn't perfect. It doesn't need to be perfect. Their economy has been up and running since April last year and most people in the country are unaffected.

Also the number of people who have had the virus, per capita, is lower than most western countries' daily figures.

Their strategy, according to several people on the ground last year who were able to get communications out from behind the "Great Firewall of China" was to murder a shit load of sick people.

People can still get communications out of China. I would think we would hear a bit more about that?, if it is true.

There were reports of the authorities locking people in their homes without any access to medical care or even food and basically letting them die. Is it true? We can't trust anything that comes out of China because of how dishonest their government is and how heavy they crack down on media and communications, but given their human rights record it's completely feasible that they could have done stuff like this.

Agreed. They are basically engaging on genocide as we speak.

"according to several people".

Who? What was their agenda?

Certainly China struggled with the coronavirus for a short while, and certainly people died from a certain amount of mismanagement.

But then the same sort of thing has happened in the west, but on a much larger scale.

Took something to suppress his viral load, but it wasn't able to wipe out the virus all together, IF HE IS THE ORIGINAL SOURCE.
