This data represents a small number compared to other countries because the Asian giant has a population of 1,411 million.
Still, China faces The new wave of corona virus led to the registration of a large number of COVID-19 cases In two years.
A. imposed on Friday Locking in the northeastern city of Changchun After hundreds of cases were found there. The new restrictions allow only one person per household to leave the house to go shopping.
In addition, All 9 million city dwellers will be tested for the virus.
about this Great locking When 13 million people were isolated at the end of last year, it was announced by China since the tax was imposed on the Xi’an (northern) metropolis.
Following the Wuhan explosion in early 2020, China adopted “Zero Govt” policy against the virusTherefore, the authorities have rushed to take drastic measures to prevent it from spreading.
Over the past two years, eruptions have rarely been the result of testing and massive closures by large sections of the population.
However, The Omicron variant, first detected in the country in January, led China to further its control policy..
Total number of active infections in the mainland of China 5,461, of which six are serious.

Why “govt zero” strategies fail to prevent infections
Faces the annoyance of With SARS-CoV-2 and its high infection rate, some countries have opted for tougher policies to prevent the spread and spread of the virus. This includes closing borders, restricting entry and exit for travelers, strictly isolating positive cases and closing neighborhoods or entire cities in the face of increased epidemics..
That strategy could have prevented thousands of deaths and serious illnesses in Asia and Oceania. However, experts insist on it They need to be accompanied by strong vaccination campaigns to achieve high levels of immunity and to ensure that controls do not last over time.. Two great explanations of these principles “COVID zero” means China and Hong Kong.
It is not clear anywhere else than this Hong Kong. His “Govit Zero” policy is being tested, and he has been facing his greatest epidemics and deaths since the outbreak began. Hospitals are overflowing And although the figures tend to go down, they are very high. Today 29,381 new daily cases have been reported.
Instead, Europe and the United States opted for drastic closures in the first months of 2020, and then opted for looser conditions as infections declined in an effort to balance health and the economy.
