- Strict lockdown imposed in China before Beijing Winter Olympics
- As the cases increased, China imposed strict lockdown in the third city of Anyang
- Winter Olympics to be organized in China from February 4 to 20
Ahead of the Beijing Winter Olympics to be held in February, cases of Kovid-19 are increasing rapidly in China. Authorities have now also imposed a lockdown in Anyang city, the third city after Xian and Tianjin to face such restrictions. Anyang, a city with a population of 5.5 million in the country’s Henan province, has tightened its epidemic control measures.
Anyang is the third city to face lockdown after tourist hub Xian and Tianjin port city, where cases linked to Omicron have been detected in the past few days. This poses a threat to China’s ‘zero corona virus case policy’. Official media said on Tuesday that since the first case was reported on Saturday, 84 cases of infection have been reported in Anyang, which are linked to local spread.
Cases increased ahead of Beijing Olympics
The increase in infection cases is taking place ahead of the Beijing Winter Olympics to be held from February 4 to 20. Meanwhile, the country’s National Health Commission said on Tuesday that nearly 200 cases have been reported from various locations in the Chinese mainland, with 110 linked to local spread. A partial lockdown has been imposed in Tianjin, China, after cases of a new form of corona virus, Omicron, were reported.
Millions of people imprisoned in homes
The region is experiencing its first local outbreak of this form of infection, but its numbers are currently low. China is one of the first countries to impose a lockdown where crores of people are still imprisoned in their homes. China ordered a lockdown in the northern city of Xi’an, with a population of 13 million people, after an increase in cases of corona virus infection. A few weeks before the hosting of the Winter Olympics, concerns have increased due to increasing cases of infection in the country.
condition getting worse due to lockdown
The situation is getting worse due to the corona virus lockdown in Xi’an city of China. Many people have said that they are left with no food to eat due to unnecessary strictness in the lockdown. At the same time, Chinese officials have claimed that enough food is being supplied to the people. In this city, one crore 30 lakh people are imprisoned in their homes for the last nine days.
People are not getting food and drink
According to the BBC report, compared to the lockdown imposed in countries around the world, Chinese people cannot go out even for essential reasons like buying food. The government claims that the supply of food is the same as before, but many people on social media say that they have not yet received the food items. Many people have mentioned about the situation like starvation.
