China seem fixed to remain in the year 2021, meanwhile other countries manage to have a much more sustainable and scientifically based control even by having cases by reducing the risk from the infection so there is no longer the need to completely interrupt social and economic measures, access to hospitals or human rights of the people and still reduce the burden to the health services to levels similar to other respiratory diseases.

The city will require all teachers and students to take nucleic acid tests for the coronavirus every day before leaving campus

Can you imagine the anxiety this causes the children and staff? It’s only a matter of time before cases spike again and they lock down again. Zero Covid is a failed strategy.

China's financial hub Shanghai said on Sunday it would reopen all schools including kindergartens, primary and middle schools on Sept 1 after months of COVID-19 closures.

You have to give China credit for keeping with their strategy from the beginning, and as statistics show, having the lowest rates of infections and covid related deaths in the world. Meanwhile, countries like New Zealand and Australia, which used the zero covid strategy successfully at first but then gave up are seeing their rates skyrocket to some of the highest in the world.

Since the CCP controls the population anyway, they would not need to use zero covid as an excuse, so it is interesting to see that the government actually cares about its citizens lives.

Now, we watch the rest of the world struggle with social and economic measures as the high infection rates disrupt their societies still, in 2022.

You have to give China credit for keeping with their strategy from the beginning, and as statistics show, having the lowest rates of infections and covid related deaths in the world.

Every source you have brought demonstrated this sentence to be completely wrong. Other countries have lower rates even before adapting the numbers reported to the same way China does to hide the vast majority of the deaths.

This means China is not the example to follow, it makes the population make unnecessary sacrifices and can't even manage to surpass other countries that don't do them, that means increasing the cost to get even less benefits.

That is the reason why no international expert supports the Chinese strategy anymore, because there are other approaches that are much more sustainable and give better results.

Yeah yeah yeah. China has to keep on indoctrinating their youth with that Communist hogwash, huh? Teach them all to be loyal to the Party and the state. Not to mention Murderous Malicious Mao and his current representative Xi.

CCP, teach your children to be loyal zombies to a twisted corruption of Marx's social theory. Pass the nonsence and BS to the kids and shovel that crap onto them - and do it right, ya hear?
