China's consumer, factory activity improve but still weak

Sounds kind of gloomy!

But as another media outlet puts it:

China's economy perks up but dogged by property crisis

Sounds like China's economy is doing alright.

This is the reason President Xi will not help Poo tin in Ukraine. Sanctions on China would be crippling to a fragile economy like theirs.

Would sanctions on any country not be crippling? Maybe China just knows it would be wrong to help Russia.

Japan also is having issues with its currency:

The ruling party is sticking with a “zero COVID” strategy that calls for keeping the disease out of China by isolating every case.

.

You can not keep out something that started there.

It is already there as it began in China.

Yes they would. The objective of the sanctioning country are to impose significant costs to the target country to coerce a change in policy or attain a specific action from the target government.

But those sanctions aren't needed because China does not have a policy and is not taking action that supports Russia.

Oh, you had to go to Wiki to learn that?

How true. The Western media keeps trying to show China is on a decline economically, while ignoring its own woes.
