Surge in Covid Cases as China’s Authoritarianism on Display for All to See in Shanghai


TrialSite News

Earlier this month TrialSite News reported on the record SARS-CoV-2 surge of clusters in China, including the most afflicted area of Shanghai, one of the world’s largest cities with about 26 million people.

Cases skyrocketed despite the government’s zero-tolerance COVID-19 policy and mass vaccination scheme (one of the most vaccinated places against SARS-CoV-2 on the planet). Now cases continue to surge, approaching 25,000 new infections per day with provincial and municipal governments employing grossly oppressive, authoritarian measures against its people.

Shanghai’s 26 million have been in lockdown for three weeks now with mounting food shortages and growing clashes with authorities.
