Changchun copes with extreme Covid-19 measures – China

Chinese residents living in the northeastern city of Changchun are pleading for help online after being told by local authorities not to step outside their homes because of COVID-19 prevention measures.

One resident seeking help was Mr. Zhao. Writing on China’s Twitter-like Weibo on March 30, he stated that his mother tested positive for COVID-19 two days earlier, while he, his wife, and their baby all had COVID-19 symptoms.

“Now, three adults and a 5-month-old child are all having a fever of 38.8 degrees Celsius [101.8 F],” he wrote, adding that he had made numerous calls, but neither his community committee nor the local disease prevention authorities offered any help.

“We don’t have any medicine or food at home. … [Our front door] has been sealed for four days. And our community committee has not sent us any supply,” he said. “I don’t want to see my child die at home. I hope people share my post so we can get some help.”

Hours after putting up his online post, Zhao told The Epoch Times that local authorities had totally ignored them.

“We asked that our child undergo a nucleic acid test, but the community committee refused. My wife and I also asked to be tested, but the request was turned down,” he said. “Our symptoms are just like what my mother had when she first tested positive.”

He said he suspected all of them had the CCP virus, which causes COVID-19.

Zhao was also critical of how his mother had been treated. He said nobody had come to move his mother to an isolation ward or send her to a medical facility for treatment.

Community officials have also refused to send them food, according to Zhao.

Changchun has been one of many areas in China hard hit by the spread of the Omicron variant of the CCP virus. In March, the city reported over 10,000 infection cases, though the actual number is likely much higher, as experts and some Chinese residents have previously expressed skepticism about official Chinese figures amid the pandemic.

A spike in infection cases prompted health officials in Changchun to announce harsh lockdown measures on March 11, placing all communities under “seal-off management” and requiring businesses to suspend their operations. Additionally, all residents in the city were to be tested for COVID-19.

Such mass testing is not limited to Changchun but has been seen throughout China. The Chinese regime is using mass testing to go after every virus case, isolate people exposed to the virus, and lock down areas where cases are reported, in a policy known as “zero-COVID.”

However, the policy has fueled rising discontent in China, as residents are upset that they have to shoulder the economic and psychological costs that come with such methods.
