There is growing concern that there may be an explosive outbreak of covid19 in China. This follows a new outbreak in Beijing from a single bar.
A spokesperson for the city’s government said a recent outbreak “The recent outbreak … is strongly explosive in nature and widespread in scope“
Meanwhile Shanghai went into a snap lockdown over the weekend, in an attempt to basically test 26 million people to see if anyone had covid19.
I have previously written about what an outbreak of covid19 in Chana could mean. China is also dealing with one of the most virulent variants of Omicron BA.2.2 which ravaged Hong Kong with a CFR (case fatality rate) of around 2%, compared to other variants of Omicron which has a CFR or around 0.1 to 0.2%. A complete meltdown could result in a staggering 50,000 to 100,000 deaths a day.
