Why does China persist with its strict no-COVID policy? | Pandemic caused by corona virus


Are from: Inside story

Anger and frustration in China as repeated blockades have limited economic activity and isolated millions.

China’s zero-tolerance approach to COVID-19 involves widespread lockdowns, travel restrictions, and mass testing.

But nearly three years after the pandemic was first identified in Wuhan, cases have risen to a new high.

Outbreaks have forced a shutdown in large swaths of the country, although strict policy was eased earlier this month.

The repeated lockdowns have led to rare expressions of public anger, including workers at the world’s largest iPhone factory fighting with security forces.

So what are the implications for China and the world?
