Beijing plunged back into ‘world’s strictest lockdown’ as Covid soars & China crushes dissent after iPhone factory riots

China reported a record-high number of infections, and in response it imposed restrictions as it continues to battle the virus, nearly three years after the pandemic broke out in Wuhan.

The state-owned CGTN network reports that cities include Beijing is returning to lockdown as part of China’s harsh policy ‘Zero Covid’ lockdown measures.

CGTN said schools, restaurants, gyms, beauty salons and other facilities were closed this week.

The capital now requires a negative PCR test result within 48 hours for those who wish to enter public places such as shopping malls, hotels and government buildings.

The streets of Chaoyang, the capital’s most populous district, are now devoid of people.

Sanlitun, an upscale shopping area, was mostly silent on Thursday, except for the sound of electric bicycles from delivery drivers delivering meals to people working from home.

Some other cities include ShanghaiGuangzhou and Chongqing have tightened restrictions on Covid as cases increase.

Zhengzhou’s six million residents are also under lockdown after workers at the giant iPhone factory battled security personnel fit for hazmat.

Hundreds of workers took to the streets around the sprawling Zhengzhou factory, confronting staff in protective gear wielding batons in a rare display of public anger in China.

In the wake of unrestThe city government ordered mass testing and effectively locked down some districts.

City center residents cannot leave the area unless they test negative for Covid and have permission from local authorities and have been asked not to leave their homes “unless necessary, needs”.

The restrictions will affect more than six million people but do not include the iPhone factory, where workers have been restricted by Covid for weeks.

China’s ‘No Covid’ policy has been ruthlessly pursued by the country’s President Xi Jinping.

Many experts say that this policy has pushed the country to the brink of disaster – potentially sowing seeds for his own overthrow.

As the rest of the world returns to normal, China has locked down 280 million people for Covid this year, turning the country into a “huge prison” and taking a toll on the economy.

Its own vaccine production efforts failed and its unwillingness to swallow its pride and import them made draconian closures the only way to tackle Covid.

The blockade order makes the Chinese people despair Come on to get food as the drones buzz around to make sure they comply with the rules.

Covid Zero has pushed Chinese citizens to the limit and there have been protests in cities across China, including Shanghai.

And in an unusual protest in Beijing just days before the opening of the Party Congress, a brave protester unfurled a banner on a highway bridge denouncing Xi as a “thief” and “dictator”. “.
