After facing huge protests, China has started taking steps to dilute its zero covid policy. Restrictions are being lifted from less affected places. Corona testing booths have been removed in Beijing, after which people have expressed happiness. At the same time, there will be no need to show the corona test report for travel in Shenzhen city. But in the midst of all this, a shocking report of scientists has also come out which can scare the citizens here. Actually, it has been told in this report that if complete exemption is given in the country then how many deaths can happen in the country and why?
Right now, after complete relaxation in China, more than 20 lakh people will die
Zhou Jiatong, the head of the Center for Disease Control in the southwestern Guangxi region, said in a report published by the Shanghai Journal of Preventive Medicine last month that if China completely relaxed the corona restrictions, there would be a pile of corpses. This exemption can kill 20 lakh people, which can destroy the economy of China.
23.3 crore people will be infected
It has been further told in this report that after the complete relaxation of the corona restrictions, the number of infected people will also increase wildly. According to scientists, 23.3 crore people may get infected a few days after giving complete exemption.
Corona figures scared in China
According to official figures, 97.13 lakh people have been infected in China since the beginning of the epidemic, while 30,388 people have died during this period. On the other hand, in the last 24 hours, 22,407 cases have been reported.
Low vaccination and lack of hybrid immunity can be the reason
British scientific information and analytics company Airfinity said on Monday that between 1.3 million and 2.1 million people could die if China pulls out its zero-COVID policy despite the country’s low vaccination and lack of hybrid immunity. Actually, according to the population in China, the pace of vaccination is very low, so even a slight relaxation can prove fatal. According to China’s National Health Commission, only 66 percent of people over the age of 80 in the country have been vaccinated against COVID-19, while only 40 percent of people in this age group have been given booster doses.
Bad effect on China’s economy
According to broker firm List Securities, 1.5 percent of GDP has been spent on corona testing in China this year. Covid testing is so expensive that in the first half only 35 companies have earned Rs 1.70 lakh crore from the public.
