Students sent home, police on patrol as China curbs protests

Started by Fred Bloggs November 29, 2022
China has pretty much wrapped this problem up in a day. The college student crowd is the main vocal group comprised of idiots too stupid to realize how stupid they are.

And the idea that "global" health experts, aka western health experts, should be criticizing China's policy for handling the epidemic is a joke. The virus shattered the west, nearly obliterating their health care systems for one thing,  with some very long lasting damage. Back breaking record deficits, labor shortages and unrest, major supply chain disruptions, unemployment, and inflation, to name a few.

But, it's largely *over* in the West. The fat lady is waiting in the wings, as far as China is concerned.

Right. They have created a huge virus-nutrient population. So in addition to the lockdown damage, they still have to deal with the virus some day when they unlock. This is Pride and Politics.

It isn't actually over in the west. Covid-19 is still killing people. Places kept out the virus until they had got a lot of the population vaccinated lost a lot less people. The US wasn't one of them. China has a problem with it's less effective home-grown vaccine and a population that doesn't want to get vaccinated - like the US but even worse.
> Right. They have created a huge virus-nutrient population.
The whole world started off susceptible to Covid-19. People stay susceptible until you vaccinate them. China didn't create anything - it has failed to vaccinate enough of it's population, and now that the virus has gotten more infectious, it has to vaccinate a lot more people with a more effective vaccine than it has got to prevent pandemic spread.
> So in addition to the lockdown damage, they still have to deal with the virus some day when they unlock.
But at least the technology is now available, if they can bring themselves to exploit a technology invented by foreign devils.

Donald Trump style. Jane Austen popularised the phrase, and John Larkin embodies it - it's probably not a conscious tribute to Jane Austin though John Larkin does claim to admire her. -- Bill Sloman, Sydney

Where are you getting these crazy ideas? China has administered nearly 3-1/2 billion doses of vaccine. To date there have been 30,000 deaths and 9.6 million confirmed cases, making the mortality no more than 0.03/9.6= 0.3% , which is about half that of the west ( assuming they got the confirmed deaths right). That is extraordinarily good performance considering the super high population density there. And the record is that any variant showing up thus far capable of evading a vaccination for the original strain results in very mild illness and only very rarely serious illness and death. The most effective preventative against disease is personal mask protection, that one is 100% effective and 100% enforced. Let China deal with running China, they don't need advice from westerners, most of whom come from COVID disaster areas. https://covid19.who.int/region/wpro/country/cn

History is rife with insane megadeath murderers and their cronies who gain absolute power by being purely vicious. Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Hirohito, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, the Kims, Putin, Xi are just a few recent examples. Some pecularity of human behavior makes this happen.
