A Striking Resurgence: President Xi Jinping Spurs A Robust Anti-Covid Plan.
Amid the catastrophic implications of the Covid-19 virus – and its pervasive influence on the health of the mass population, President Xi Jinping on Monday shared his initiative to tighten anti-covid measures.
The move comes in as a decisive sweep to the pandemic’s incessant spread across the South Asian region. China being the pioneer of uptight covid measures – and also the country of origin of the virus – has led the way again in tackling its healthcare crisis.
News Agency PTI reported Xi’s move as a part of his new directive for Covid control. According to the Prez, more targeted patriotic campaigns should be conducted for the same.
Xi furthermore elucidated his stance by demanding the need for mass education on health knowledge & skills, in addition to a base of hygiene and lifestyle practices to build up the nation’s immunity .
Xi’s government – in view of a multitude of protests against the impositions of the government – had recently relaxed his stringent zero-covid policy earlier this month.
The incident has most likely resulted in a spike in infections across the country. Many of these are believed to be Omicron variants.
Across the entirety of Beijing, the Chinese government reported only seven deaths. This was a stark contrast to the hue & cry over ICUs and crematoriums being filled to utmost capacity.
The spike has further urged Premier Li Keqiang to reinstate the medical & procedural outcomes of solid anti-covid action plan. Effectively, it would ensure that the population has access to all medical services & supplies 24/7.
A leaked document – stated to have come from China’s Health commission – highlighted how the spike occurred between December 1 and 20 .
Cumulatively, 248 million people or 17.56 percent of the population have afflicted.
Media reports – as earlier stated – claim that ICUs across China are facing a community spread of Omicron – especially transmission among the elderly.
A total of 13 Covid-19 vaccines are available for the Chinese diaspora for the second booster dose.
All of them have been approved purely for conditional use or marketing purposes.
A report issued in the concern of public health stated that those with a high-risk condition, low immunity, or 60+ citizens must get a second booster shot 6 months after the initial dose.
A collective of 3.46 billion doses of the vaccine have been administered to the Chinese population, with over 90% of the population said to be vaccinated.
