SHARE

The novel coronavirus keeps making life a living nightmare worldwide, and it seems that China is no exception. 

CNN just noted that the authorities in northern China are reimposing lockdowns and other emergency measures to curb the spread of coronavirus.

It’s been also revealed the fact that health officials are warning of a worsening outbreak after the country recorded more than 100 cases across 11 provinces over the last week.

“Since October 17, there have been multiple scattered local outbreaks in China, and they’re expanding rapidly.”

This is what Mi Feng, a spokesman at the National Health Commission (NHC), said at a news conference Sunday.

“There is an increasing risk that the outbreak will spread even further.”

CNN also made sure to point out the fact that the rapid spread comes despite about 75% of China’s population — or more than a billion people — being fully vaccinated, according to Mi.

The caseload of China’s latest outbreak is paling in comparison with those of some other countries, including Singapore and the UK, CNN continues to explain. 

The same article also pointed out the fact that the Chinese government insists on a strict zero-Covid policy to stamp out infections.
