According to reports, the latest Covid-19 lockdown in the Chinese city of Xi’an is so strict that locals are now reportedly starving to death as a result.
China’s “zero-covid” policy is making it difficult for many Chinese people, especially those in Xi’an, to continue putting food on the table.
The city is said to be ground zero for the latest covid outbreak. Reportedly, the final week of 2021 saw infection numbers rise to their highest levels since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
An estimated 13 million people live in Xi’an, and most of them are believed to be fully vaccinated. However, the latest “variant” of covid is spreading rapidly, according to the government, which decided that the best way to deal with the spread of infection is to lock everyone prisoner inside their homes.
The restrictions mean that residents are not allowed to leave for any reason, which means that they are relying on the government to bring them food. Unsurprisingly, this setup is not turning out well for those confined to their homes with no way out.
Previously, one person from every household was permitted to leave their home to buy food every two days. In response to rising case numbers, the rules were tightened.
Since the lockdown has been imposed, the daily case numbers have apparently declined.

“Forgive us for this policy which, for a year and a half, has made you victims of violence, neglect, isolation, and loneliness.”
“We persuaded our children that they were going to murder their grandma if they dared to be what they are, children. Or if they met their friends. None of this has been scientifically proven.” ... Continue reading >>>back to menu
