WHO Chief Censored on China’s Internet After Calling “Zero-COVID” an Unsustainable Policy

The head of the WHO is being censored on China’s internet after questioning the sustainability of the country’s “zero-COVID” policy.

The censorship on Weibo and WeChat, China’s two largest social media platforms, targets WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus’ comments that expressed rare disagreement with Beijing’s policies.

“When we talk about the zero-COVID strategy, we don’t think that it is sustainable, considering the behavior of the virus now and what we anticipate in the future,” Tedros told a media briefing Tuesday (May 10).

“We have discussed this issue with Chinese experts and we indicated that the approach will not be sustainable…I think a shift will be very important,” he said.

The United Nation’s official press account on China’s Twitter-like Weibo posted Tedro’s comments early on Wednesday (May 11) morning.

By mid-morning, the post was no longer viewable on Weibo. A Weibo hashtag of Tedros’ name has also been censored, with images featuring his face being scrubbed from the platform. On WeChat, an article from the UN’s official account that included Tedros’ comments has been “banned from sharing due to a violation of relevant laws and regulations” as of Wednesday morning. Video clips of Tedros’ speech have also been removed from the platform.

Tedros’ comments, however, are in line with the assessment of most scientists.
