They should have known this was coming…
China has started to lockdown certain places in their capital Beijing after a new coronavirus outbreak occurred in the area.
A report from The New York Times stated that 53 people tested positive for the virus, and almost all of them “worked or shopped at the Xinfadi market, a wholesale market on the city’s south side that sells seafood, fruit and vegetables.”
Times even wrote, “The authorities in Beijing placed a swath of the city under lockdown on Monday and tested tens of thousands of people as they rushed to contain a new coronavirus outbreak that marked an unnerving breach in China’s capital. The authorities shut down and sealed the market over the weekend.”
The Beijing spokesman Xu Hejian said, “The epidemic situation in the capital is extremely severe. Right now we have to take strict measures to stop the spread of Covid-19.”
It’s surprising the Chinese Communist Party would not have thought that lying about the outbreak would hurt them in the end. They stated that the virus was contained and had the city of Wuhan come out of lockdown knowing that the virus was still raging on.
They get no sympathy. Read the full story here.
