The Asia Times reveals China is now taking stronger measures in order to stem the tide of COVID-19 Delta variant infections that originated in India but are reportedly sweeping the Middle Kingdom’s southern cities such as Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Even though there have been Delta variant infections in the United States, it is reportedly not much of a threat to people who are vaccinated.
In China’s case, their outbreak is, most likely, due to their Sinovac vaccine. Despite being rated as very effective, Reuters reported in May that the World Health Organization lacked information needed to determine its overall quality and any risks of detrimental aftereffects. None-the-less, India quickly achieved herd immunity even though a fraction of its population was vaccinated. In light of China also being a Communist state, the Delta variant outbreak could be a tool the regime is using to keep their populace scared which makes them easier to control.
