Chinese official media “Xinhua News Agency” published an article last week titled “China’s Epidemic Optimization and Control Measures According to Time and Situation” He wrote a long article of more than 10,000 words to reveal the transmission process of the new crown epidemic. prevent, but inadvertently drop and admit the failure of the deletion policy. , the British media interpreted “The Spectator” (The Spectator) this week, “For the first time in history, the Chinese government has admitted the real reason for relaxing The zero policy can not control the Omicron mutant strain.”
An article by “Xinhua News Agency” mentioned that an extraordinary meeting was held on November 10, 2022 in Zhongnanhai, Beijing, and Chinese state leader Xi Jinping instructed to “improve the effectiveness of epidemic prevention work.” The 20 optimization measures proposed by the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee for the first time in parliament also represent that before the large-scale white paper protests swept across China, the top leaders of the Communist Party of China were discuss changes to the zero clearance policy.
In early November, it became clear that China’s no-exit policy was failing to curb the spread of Omicron. Even the highly inaccurate official figures are seeing a record number of new cases per day. As of November 10, more than 800,000 Chinese were locked in square cabins, and millions more were placed under quarantine.
“Xinhua News Agency” also admitted in the article, “In October, new domestic epidemics continued to emerge, and the characteristics of rapid transmission became more and more obvious, affecting 31 provinces, and some local epidemics continued for about 3 months. The latent transmission characteristics are obvious, cleared The difficulty is high, and the social cost and the cost of epidemic prevention and control are increasing…”
In addition to uncontrollable mutant strain, the Xinhua News Agency article also implicitly admitted that the white paper revolution was the key factor that forced the rapid unblocking. He wrote: “In China with a population of more than 1.4 billion, different people will have different There will also be different opinions on things. At the end of November 2022, some people said that some areas have “silent”, “layer by layer” management and issues preventing and controlling others, which caused great concern.”
Singapore media “Lianhe Zaobao” pointed out that the long article of “Xinhua News Agency” is equivalent to an indirect acknowledgment that the White Paper Movement has forced the Chinese government to change its anti-epidemic thinking, and reflected that the long-term clearance is only ” strategy of delay” was in the past, and the officer had not previously transferred to back-clearing A clear plan for the age. “The Spectator” said: “The CCP seems to have given in easily between the virus and the fatigue of the siege.”
Starting at the end of November 2022, Chinese universities took the lead in starting a “blank paper revolution” to raise a voice in favor of anti-zero, which has also become a key factor in China’s unblocking. Figure: @t3n0TYnpIQ0eF0D Twitter Flip (file photo)
