Xi Jinping bows down to massive demonstrations as Covid restrictions ease in China’s big cities


slight easing of covid restrictions

Authorities in southern Shenzhen said on Saturday that there would no longer be a need to have a Covid negative test or show a Covid negative certificate to use public transport or visit public places. Let us tell you that till now it was mandatory to show Kovid negative certificate every time using public transport service in China, so people using public transport had to get Kovid test done every other day, for which they had to spend extra money. Along with this, people had to stand in line for many hours, this also made people very upset. The southern city of Chengdu and the northern metropolis of Tianjin have also been exempted from showing a Covid negative certificate. Meanwhile, officials in the city of Beijing said on Friday that, starting on Monday, public transportation will no longer require a negative COVID-19 test result. However, it is still mandatory to show Kovid negative certificate within 48 hours to go to shopping malls and parks.

There have been huge demonstrations in many cities of China

There have been huge demonstrations in many cities of China

Let us tell you that in the last one week there have been huge demonstrations in many cities of China and the video of breaking the Kovid test centers built in the capital Beijing has also gone viral. At the same time, experts say that the government should have taken these decisions earlier and should not have tested the patience of the people. However, minor relaxations in Covid restrictions have been given in only a few major cities and no relief has been given in the rest of China so far. Rest of Chinese cities will still require Covid test in public places and they will have to stand in line for 2-4 hours to get Covid test done after every 48 hours. Only after getting the Kovid negative certificate, they can go to work, or can do their daily work. Covid test booths in China are open day and night and all the time there is a gathering of 100/200 people in front of the booth.

The country will be able to open only after March

The country will be able to open only after March

Analysts watching China believe that Chinese markets will not be able to open before March next year, because China has now started vaccination of the elderly and markets are likely to open only after knowing its magnitude. The Chinese government estimates that if China is fully opened up and all Covid restrictions are lifted, at least 1.3 million to 2 million people may die. At the same time, the Chinese Health Department is rapidly vaccinating the elderly, so that the country can control the deaths to a great extent in the event of opening up. Let us tell you that China has given information about 32,827 new Kovid cases on Saturday. At the same time, till Friday, China has given 5,233 death toll from Kovid.

At the same time, Dr. Michael Ryan, Emergency Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday that China has relaxed some of the Covid restrictions and it is a pleasure to see. He said, “It’s really important that governments listen to their people, when people are in pain”. Chinese President Xi Jinping cited youth frustration as the reason for the protests during a meeting with European Union officials in Beijing on Thursday. Frustrated youths have demonstrated because of the pandemic, he said, but pointed out to European officials that governments had imposed extensive restrictions to control the Omicron variant of Covid. China says that it has only recently begun to reduce the threat posed by Omicron and that if it had not been contained, a large number of people could have died in the country.
