COVID Cases in China: China's zero-covid policy may fail??

By Srikanto Mandal 30 Sept, 2022

The United States has expressed  its concern over new deaths in China due to the Covid-19 virus.

Last week China dismantled its zero-covid policy due to unprecedented public protests.

On Monday, two Covid deaths were reported by China's National Health Commission.

According to the commission, 1,995 new Covid-19 cases have been reported in mainland China.

As of Sunday, National Health Health Commion received reports of 380,453 confirmed cases and 5,237 deaths.

Due to the sudden change in course, it estimates that the world's most populous country could now face a million deaths next year.

The zero-covid policy has kept infections and deaths relatively low among China's 1.4 billion people.

But, the WHO recently labeled it as "unsustainable" this year due to growing concerns about its impact on both citizens' lives and the country's economy.
