I thought this was interesting, looks as though China is going back into lockdowns again!
China: Businesses shut as officials widen Covid lockdowns
Full story in link above but this sums it up -
It feels like China has gone backwards. Two years backwards. To the early days of the outbreak that first emerged here.
Drastic measures are being imposed - again - on a large scale, to try to contain the virus. An entire province has been sealed off.
The lockdown of Jilin is similar in so many ways to Hubei in early 2020; the area of China where it all began.
Shenzhen, the globally important tech hub (where your iPad was most likely made) is also a city in lockdown.
Shanghai - where I am writing this - home to 24 million people, is a nervous place. All schools are closed, children are learning online, increasingly people are working from home.
Some compounds where people live are enforcing strict rules on who can come in. Deliveries are being sprayed with disinfectant again at the gates.
It's all part of the ongoing effort to maintain/retain/regain China's "dynamic zero-Covid" strategy - a goal that has been boosted by the mass roll-out of China's homemade vaccines, and that has been helped hugely by effectively shutting China's borders.
But now that goal is being significantly undermined by the Omicron variant.
Doesn't really say much about their vaccine if they have supposedly jabbed all their population already and are having to literally lockdown millions of people for fear of the much milder Omicron version of Covid, does it?
