China’s COVID-19 Death Toll Rises as Beijing Warns of “Grim” Situation in Shanghai
Shanghai reported 39 COVID-19 deaths Sunday (April 24), its highest daily toll, while China’s capital Beijing warned of a “grim” situation.
The world’s second-largest economy has been using a playbook of harsh lockdowns and mass testing as it sticks to a strict “zero-COVID” policy, taking a heavy toll on businesses and public morale.
The cosmopolitan business hub of Shanghai has been almost entirely locked down since the start of the month, snarling supply chains.
China’s biggest city only announced its first COVID-19 death on April 18. It reported 39 deaths on Sunday, bringing its total toll to 87. Shanghai’s previous highest daily toll since lockdown was 12, reported on Saturday (April 23).
Destruction of Food Begins in Shanghai with Fences Installed to Keep People Locked Down
While China works hard to suppress what is currently happening in Shanghai and other places in China that have strict lockdowns by deleting social media posts as quickly as possible, some videos and images are being captured and preserved that show how life has become pure hell in Shanghai, with citizens starving to death and being locked down in cages like animals.
Deliberate destruction of food is reportedly happening on a large scale, blaming “COVID” for contaminating the food as they use cotton swab PCR tests to test animals like chickens and fish, while reportedly destroying many tons of fresh produce.
This week fencing appeared overnight in many places to lockdown people in their homes and apartments, and this even made the corporate news cycle this weekend, with the BBC and the Associated Press covering the story.
When you read the corporate news accounts, however, they will give some justification for these actions by reporting on the alleged increase in COVID cases, paving the way for similar measures to happen in the U.S. and other places where maybe the measures will not be quite as harsh as what China is doing, as this is simply a continuation of the massive propaganda media hyping fear over a “virus” that continues to be used to justify medical tyranny and the suspension of all appearances of law and order in the name of the “pandemic.” read more ( Health Impact News)
