Covid-19: infections increase and millions end up in lockdown


The pandemic of COVID-19 in China it has always been strange on the outside. There is talk of a nation with well over a billion population, but with very few cases of contagion. In reality they have never really been like this, but simply because they have implemented a particular and not very widespread system on tracking. On the contrary, they have done a lot of work on lockdowns that have returned for millions of people.

These days, the new cases of Covid-19 have been the highest since May. How much are we talking about? Less than 500 yet this meant the return to the isolation of entire cities of millions of inhabitants. The way it works in China, it only takes one case to send entire neighborhoods into lockdown and for a while you stop testing. For this reason it is easy to imagine that in reality the numbers are much higher.

Covid-19: China on the defensive again

China, like much of the rest of the world, faces the new variant of the Omicron strain which we have known for a long time to be particularly contagious. This, coupled with less effective herd immunity than in other countries, has become a new challenge for the country’s government facing new economic slowdowns since the last quarter was already sluggish.

In the coming weeks we could see the effects of a much more widespread contagion than what the current numbers show. The effect will certainly be heavy and will be talked about tens of millions of people in lockdown.
