Will China’s Latest Move Reinfect the World?

Experts are concerned

If you’ve been following the news, you know that China has been in the midst of a surge of Covid that has infected at least 248 million people. They’ve drastically locked down and done everything they can to the detriment of their own economy in order to stop the disease. But experts are concerned that China’s latest move could literally reinfect the world: they lifted their restrictions on international travel yet again as of January 8. (Even though the surge in coronavirus cases continues.) The Biden administration will impose testing requirements for any travelers from China, after calling Trump “xenophobic” for doing the same.

 The health body added that outbound tourism, which plummeted to almost nothing during the pandemic, will resume in an “orderly” fashion. It also removed the cap on the number of international flights to and from China.

The regime’s immigration administration said that passport applications for citizens intending to travel internationally will resume on Jan. 8…

The border reopening comes as China is gripped in a surge of COVID, which by the regime’s own estimates infected 248 million people in the first 20 days of December. Analysis by UK researchers also projected 167 and 279 million cases nationwide, which could lead to between 1.3 and 2.1 million deaths.

Earlier this month, the communist regime abruptly reversed its draconian zero-COVID policy that had battered the economy and caused extreme suffering among hundreds of millions who endured sporadic lockdowns for nearly three years.

But the lack of preparation for the lifting of the policy has resulted in health services and mortuaries being overwhelmed, and severe drug shortages as the virus spirals out of control across the country.”

Will China’s move reinfect the world? Or have we learned enough by now to prevent it?

Ineptitude of our own leaders caused literally millions of Americans to destroy their immune systems from lockdowns and vaccines. Adults and children alike are without their full natural immunity to fight off coronavirus diseases that may be spread from China. Though we are now much more knowledgeable about COVID, some experts are sounding the alarm.

Experts say that the Chinese government’s abrupt removal of travel restrictions could very well cause another worldwide pandemic. It is unclear which COVID strains are causing the massive outbreaks in the country, because the Chinese government refuses to be transparent.

In Fall 2019, at least 5 million Chinese were allowed to travel overseas without screening for Covid. The result was a worldwide pandemic. Is this a “strategy” designed to send disease throughout the world?

One virologist thinks so:

“The CCP is not sharing data, and the international community doesn’t know how many different virus variants are spreading in China, and whether there are other compound infections. Under such circumstances, it is extremely irresponsible for the CCP to let the people out of the country which is a huge epidemic area. Put another way, it has a very treacherous purpose and is very malicious.” Sean Lin, a virologist and former lab director at the viral disease branch of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research

New restrictions for travel from China, Hong Kong, or Macau to the US include submitting a negative test two days before departure for all passengers over 2 years old beginning Jan 5. For those who tested positive ten days before departure, they must show proof of recovery from the disease. But the CDC warned that new variants could emerge from China’s removal of restrictions, and it will take some time for the medical community to “study” them. The US December 23 travel advisory against going to China also warned of the surge in disease and arbitrary enforcement of restrictions.

There you have it: take your vitamins and guard your immune system. Don’t level hate against Chinese travelers. Simply be prepared.
