Yesterday (18th) at around 2:30 am on a highway in Guizhou, China, a bus on its way to a corona quarantine facility overturned into a roadside ditch, killing 27 people and injuring 20 others. According to the state-run Global Times, there were 47 people in the vehicle, except for two including the driver and medical staff, 45 were residents of Guiyang ‘related to coronavirus’. They were on their way from town around midnight on their way to a coronavirus quarantine facility in Livo, 200 kilometers to the southeast.

“‘Zero Corona’ is catching people”…Chinese public opinion ‘boogle’
Public opinion in China is boiling over the fact that an accident occurred while moving residents to an isolation facility 200 km away in the middle of the night. It is a disaster caused by China’s unreasonable zero-corona control in China. In China, not only confirmed cases, but also close contacts and secondary contacts are quarantined. Chinese social media Weibo has been posting messages saying that bus passengers are not infected, but people who live in the same building as the infected person. Authorities did not specifically announce whether these were confirmed cases, close contacts, or secondary contacts.
Local government apologizes, “We will investigate the cause of the accident” … Criticism deleted
The Deputy Mayor of Guiyang City, Lin Kang, held a press conference last night and said, “This accident has caused a huge loss to the life and safety of the people. I sincerely apologize,” he said. He also promised to investigate the cause of the accident properly.

However, all photos related to the accident are managed on Weibo, where incidents and accidents, large-scale disasters and disasters are posted. Posts criticizing the Chinese authorities about the accident are also deleted one after another. On the 16th, there was an accident in Changsha, Hunan Province, at about 4 o’clock in the 42-story China Telecom building that burned in flames and went out in about 4 hours. A video of citizens evacuating was shared on Weibo and was suddenly deleted. Chinese authorities said there were no injuries. In the event of a major accident, it was different from the one that notified the evacuation personnel. Censorship and control of social media are being strengthened as the Chinese Communist Party congress is held next month ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s third term.
