The situation is getting worse due to Corona infection in China, but the Chinese Communist Administration is not ready to accept that the number of Kovid infected and deaths in its country is increasing continuously. He says that he considers Kovid’s death only on pneumonia and respiratory failure.
On the other hand, queues of the dead were seen at the cremation grounds on Thursday as well. According to the report of Bloomberg newspaper, the Chinese authorities have also instructed the corona infected to return to work soon in order to smoothen the country’s economy. While pharmaceutical companies are also forced to work overtime day and night.
The situation is very bad in China’s cities like Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai. According to Bloomberg, in view of the increasing pressure of the epidemic in China, people are being told that it is like seasonal flu and the new Omicron form is not very dangerous.
Epidemiologist Zhong Nanshan even said that the Omicron virus is nothing more than a common cold, so don’t panic. While the zero-covid policy has been relaxed, the beds in the hospitals have started falling short and the situation in the morgues is dire. According to the report, it was China’s compulsion to relax the zero-covid policy as its economy has collapsed.
The Chinese administration believes that the virus may spread but the pace of the economy is necessary. To increase production in manufacturing and factories, workers are being asked to return to work even if they are infected. Government employees in the western metropolis of Chongqing and the manufacturing hub of Zhejiang on the east coast have been told to come to work if they are infected with the novel coronavirus with mild symptoms.
Free distribution of medicines started
The Chinese authorities may not believe that the infection has spread in the country, but it has started distributing free anti-fever drugs to citizens in the country’s cities. State media Global Times said local governments are taking steps to address drug shortages, while pharmaceutical companies are working overtime to increase supplies.
According to the report, the Dongguan administration in southern China has said that 100,000 ibuprofen tablets have arrived in the city, and will be distributed to 41 state-run drug stores this week. In Wuhan, 3 million ibuprofen tablets have been supplied to medical institutions and retail pharmacies daily since 17 December. 18 pharmacies have been set up for free drug distribution in Sanya on southern Hainan Island. Zhoukou is giving away 10 free tablets on one ID card.
WHO expressed concern, urged to increase vaccination
World Health Organization (WHO) chief Dr. Tedros A. Gebreyes has said that he is extremely concerned about the rapidly increasing Covid cases in China. He has urged China to rapidly increase the pace of vaccination among people in the most at-risk areas.
Appealing to give detailed information on the seriousness of the disease, admissions in hospitals and ICU requirements, he said that WHO is very concerned about the situation in China. The cases of serious diseases are increasing here. We will continue to support China in providing medical care and protecting its health system.
