Three Reported Dead In Latest Covid Outbreak In China

Three people have been reported dead in China in the latest Covid outbreak in the country. The three people, aged between 89 and 91, had several comorbidities and were unvaccinated.

This report was released by the city’s health commission. Officials also said the city recorded 22,248 cases on Monday. Since March, these are the first Covid deaths the country has reported.

“Firstly because, up to this point, it was a miraculous stretch of credulity to think that no one in a city of almost 25 million people had succumbed to this wave of the virus. But second, and more importantly, we know that people HAVE already died after contracting Covid in this outbreak. We have reported that. It happened to dozens of elderly patients at a single hospital in Shanghai. But they were not official Covid deaths, according to the authorities. They died of underlying problems, apparently.” Robin Brant, an analyst wrote in a statement.

Since the discovery of an Omicron-led outbreak three weeks ago, Shanghai has been under strict lockdown. Authorities confined people to their homes.

Anyone who tests positive is immediately sent to quarantine centres. People have been complaining about the limited supply of things like food.

People have also had to order for food and water and wait for government drop-offs of vegetables, meat and eggs. Analysts say many are running low on supplies.

Currently, it’s China having such strict measures regarding Covid-19. Other countries have slowly learned to live with the virus as business goes on as usual.
