No efforts should be spared to ensure smooth delivery of medical supplies including vaccinations, 

Oh-oh! ??!? China is about to make another big mistake. Someone better tell them that vaccines don't work!!!!!

In a warning letter posted on Friday, the watchdog banned activities including...misleading propaganda

That's good because no way has the CCP been telling porky-pies about infection rates, deaths and how the rest of the world has dealt with and is dealing with Corona. Nor did they cover up the start of the pandemic or persecute the doctor who tried to warn everybody that things were going to get funky in dreamland very quickly.

PS:a tongue-in-check post for my fans.

My colleague in China visiting her ailing father now says there is some relief of relaxation of measures, but now everyone is scared how to get medicine and care if numbers spike. She said large scale buying and hoarding is underway and it is very difficult to get any medicine.

It seems that Chinese citizens don't trust their government's claim that the vaccines they took were effective.

It seems that Chinese citizens don't trust their government's claim that the vaccines they took were effective.

When the government systematically contradicts the scientific consensus and instead rely on unsustainable counterproductive measures (but that coincidentally allow for a stricter control of the population) this is an expected result.

If the world already knows very well the Chinese vaccines are subpar compared with those used in the developed countries elsewhere that also can make the population of China wary of them.

That might be the case Bronco.

Fancy, if the gov were to have taken foreign vaccines from when they were available, things would be much better now, and this dreaded "demic would be over!!! Yeah?

Except the scientific consensus that guided Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea, and even Japan--all which took a different approach to most scientists in the West who have to explain how millions of deaths resulted from their strategy---or lack of.

No, they did not, they took the same approach ad adapted to their own situation (like availability of masks, vaccines, etc.) Your baseless appeal to authority is still without any merit, Japanese and Korean doctors clearly supported the WHO recommendations without any problem as proved by multiple references.

Also, as you yourself have praised the response of Sweden, how many millions of deaths do you think they have? according to you they have a much better strategy that clearly protected their population by not using lockdowns that hurt more than they protect.
