China’s ‘Zero Covid Policy’ is not sustainable rather Damaging says WHO

The head of the World Health Organization said on Tuesday that China’s Covid-19 tolerance policy was unstable in light of what was known about the disease, in an unusual public comment by the UN agency on government control of the virus.

Medical Experts say such a hard policy is being practiced for long term in China, which is nothing but a mental trauma for all generations. This is matter of great concern and will surely bear damaging results in near future.

“We do not consider it possible to reconsider the nature of the virus,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference.

Speaking after Tedros, WHO’s director of emergency services Mike Ryan said the impact of the “zero-Covid” policy on human rights also needed to be considered and the impact on the country’s economy on any Covid policy.

He also pointed out that China has registered far more than reported 15,000 deaths since the outbreak began in Wuhan city in late 2019 – a low number compared to 999,475 in the United States.

With that in mind, it is understandable, says Ryan, that one of the most populous countries in the world may want to take drastic measures to prevent coronavirus infection.

Nevertheless, China’s zero-Covid policy has drawn criticism from scientists to its citizens, leading to a cycle of closure of billions of people, grief and anger.

Continued eruptions also underscore how difficult it is to stop the spread of highly infectious omicron variants.

Under zero-Covid, authorities are shutting down most of the population to stop the spread of the virus due to any outbreak of coronavirus, even if a small number of people are diagnosed with HIV.

Shanghai measures have been particularly strong, with citizens being allowed to leave compounds for various reasons, such as a medical emergency. Many are not even allowed to go out their doors to meet their neighbors.

Its incarceration policy has also been criticized for separating children from parents and placing asymptomatic charges among those with symptoms.
