Chinese Citizens Clash With Covid Workers Zero Covid Policy Is Hard To Balance For China

China Covid Ban: Residents of Eastern China’s Shandong province clashed with Kovid-19 officials on Monday (November 7). Because of this, seven Kovid-19 workers appointed by the government were arrested in Lini city of Shandong. It is alleged that those workers beat up those who were protesting against the stringent Kovid-control measures in their area. The Lini police said, “they will take strong measures against those who “illegally violated the legal rights of citizens to personal protection”. In fact, the new corona infections have caused uproar across the country.

It has become difficult for the Chinese government to balance together its “zero-Covid” strategy, people’s complaints against the lockdown-related ban and the recent case.

The National Health Commission (NHC) said on Tuesday, 7,475 cases of corona were reported on November 7, which was 5,496 just the day before. Which was equal to the highest number of cases that came on May 1 this year.
