New China Coronavirus Lockdown Affects 108 Million

While President Trump is busy threatening and blackmailing U.S. governors across the country into re-opening their states, China has just ordered the lockdown of over a hundred million as a new and growing cluster of infections causes a backslide in the nation’s return to normal.

President Trump is focused on re-opening America to get the U.S. economy back up and running from the U.S. coronavirus lockdown nightmare. The Chinese who thought they had vanquished the coronavirus are now being forced to impose an even bigger shutdown than the one they put in place in Wuhan. If you’re watching FOX news and other conservative networks, you haven’t heard a word about this enormous danger.  This epitomizes the power of Donald Trump to keep his base, thinking solely the thoughts he intends them to think.

Live 42% longer and still eat loads of cheese, breads, and rich desserts? A resurgence in China has mandated an abrupt reversal of its national re-opening. Cities in Jilin province located in the country’s northeast region have cut off trains and buses, shut schools, and quarantined their entire population. The strict measures are dismaying many residents who had thought the worst of the nation’s epidemic was over.

Fan Pai, who works at a trading company in Shenyang, a city in nearby Liaoning province that’s also facing renewed coronavirus restrictions, was quoted as saying...

“People are feeling more cautious again, Children playing outside are wearing masks again, and health care workers are walking around in protective gear, she said. It’s frustrating because you don’t know when it will end.”

This second lockdown in China is happening much quicker than the previous Wupan infection outbreak. According to Chinese authorities, the outbreak isn’t growing as quickly as the episode in Wuhan, which started the current coronavirus global pandemic last December.

The rapidity and size of the reaction taking place now reflect China’s leaders fear that a second wave of the coronavirus’s spread will inflict a great economic and social cost. It’s also a sign of how fragile the re-opening process will be in China and elsewhere as even the slightest hint of a resurgence of infections could prompt a return to strict lockdown.

The government of the city in Jilin, in the province of Shulan, said on WeChat on Monday it’s putting in place the strictest measures yet to contain the virus. Residential compounds with confirmed or suspected cases will be closed off, with only one person from each family allowed to leave to purchase essentials for two hours every two days.

Shen Jia, a Shenyang-based salesman who works for a life sciences company, said in an interview he has been forced to cancel a three-day business trip to Jilin city last week because he would have been quarantined for as long as 21 days on his return.

Shen Jia noted that even in Shenyang, a state-owned restaurant he visited last week separated his party of three because only two people are allowed at each table. A restriction that had been eased weeks ago before being re-instated.

“You can feel that control is stricter,” he said. People “have been more careful and reduced outdoor activities.”

For Shen Jia and residents of Jilin city, all of this feels like déjà vu.

It’s starting to feel like the same strict lockdown implemented throughout most of China in February and March. Keep in mind that when China’s first shutdown took place, the number of daily cases being reported was still in the single digits. To date, those low initial numbers of infections left Jilin province with only 127 cases, while the Hubei province, which includes Wuhan had 68,000 cases.

This latest shutdown by China has already stopped delivery services from supplying anti-fever medication at drugstores to prevent people from hiding their symptoms. The tension has spread to nearby areas, even though no cases have been reported officially in those places yet.

Wang Yuemei, a pharmaceutical factory worker in neighboring Tonghua…

“Everyone is jittery, I never ever expected Jilin province to be a hard-hit area when the whole country is getting back to normal now.”

 

The Chinese have been dealing with a global storm of criticism and threats from the United States and Europe for its delayed response to Wuhan’s outbreak, President Xi Jinping’s administration is taking visible steps to stop the new spread of the virus in the northeast of China.

Vice-Premier Sun Chunlan, who led the central government’s virus task force in Wuhan, arrived in Jilin City seven days ago on May 13. 2020, to take charge of the needed response. Upon his arrival, the highest-ranking Communist Party official in Shulan, where the new cluster’s first infection emerged, was removed on Saturday, along with five other cadres.

The pressure to contain the infections, if that is possible, with China’s annual political meetings scheduled to commence this week in Beijing after being delayed by the first wave of the pandemic from their usual March date. Thousands of political delegates are scheduled to gather in the Chinese capital to endorse the government’s agenda. The meetings are taking place while a new outbreak underway shows how determined the central leadership of China is to project stability and calm during this period.

How the new cluster of coronavirus cases started this time is baffling Chinese health officials. Still, it’s being reported that they suspect that the patients may have come into contact with infected returnees from Russia, which now has one of the worst outbreaks in Europe.

Wang Bin, a National Health Commission official, during a briefing on Sunday, hinted at the government’s belief of the source of this second way by saying…

“Those in charge of transporting potentially infected arrivals from abroad to centralized quarantine centers need to do a better job. Imported cases from overseas and clustered infections domestically have created dual pressure on us in containing the virus.”

The new cluster is also a reminder that much of China remains vulnerable to the virus. Something our health officials and the Trump Administration should also be paying attention to this news. Shutting down Hubei province and the city of Wuhan has NOT eliminated the danger.

Chinese epidemiologist Zhong Nanshan told CNN over the weekend….

 “The majority of Chinese at the moment are still susceptible to the COVID-19 infection. The nation is facing a big challenge, and China is not better than in foreign countries.”

The impact on the Chinese people and their lives are being featured in videos circulating on Chinese social media. One of the videos showed some senior high school students in tears when they were told to leave their campus because they’d lose precious time to prepare for their college entrance exams due in two months.

Zhou Han, an 18-year-old student in Jilin, is shown in one video saying…

“It’s really unfortunate for us to encounter the epidemic at this point in time…I’m anxious because I can’t prepare for the exam well without last-minute instruction and supervision by my teachers.”
