China is reportedly experiencing a spike in coronavirus cases in its Jilin province, more than 1,300 miles northeast of Hubei province where the outbreak originally began last winter, pushing more than 100 million people back into lockdown.
Public transportation and schools have closed and people have been quarantined once again, with 34 new cases of coronavirus and one death recently reported in the province. Given the CCP’s propensity to lie, however, the real number is likely much higher.
How do we believe China on anything ever again when they maintain this is their COVID-19 death rate? Somehow every single other country got hit harder, you guys. pic.twitter.com/lXKoOHjzKj— Karol Markowicz (@karol) May 19, 2020
People “are feeling more cautious again,” said Fan Pai, who works at a trading company in Shenyang, a city in nearby Liaoning province that’s also facing renewed restrictions. “Children playing outside are wearing masks again” and health care workers are walking around in protective gear, she said. “It’s frustrating because you don’t know when it will end.” […]
Still, delivery services have been mostly halted and anti-fever medication is banned at drugstores to prevent people from hiding their symptoms. The tension has spread to nearby areas, even if no cases have been reported officially in those places yet.
“Everyone is jittery,” said Wang Yuemei, a pharmaceutical factory worker in neighboring Tonghua. “I never ever expected Jilin province to be a hard-hit area when the whole country is getting back to normal now.” (Bloomberg)
The new cases may be linked to people returning from Russia, health officials said, which currently has the second highest number of cases in the world, according to Johns Hopkins University.
