Die Anti-lockdown Proteste weiten sich über ganz China aus

By Jordi Bou

November 28, 2022 - Behörden in China verhaften Protestierende, die ein Ende der strengen
Covid Restriktionen fordern, es ist die größte Welle zivilen Ungehorsams seit XiJinping vor 10 Jahren an die Macht gekommen ist.

From the streets of Shanghai and Beijing to university campuses, protesters made a show of civil disobedience unprecedented since leader Xi Jinping assumed power a decade ago to oversee the quashing of dissent and establishment of an extensive high-tech social surveillance system.

Three years after the virus emerged in the central city of Wuhan, China remains the only major country not treating COVID as endemic, imposing arduous restrictions on the daily lives of hundreds of millions across the country.

China has recorded its highest number of daily Covid cases since the pandemic began, despite stringent measures designed to eliminate the virus.

Beijing reported a fifth straight daily record of 40,347 new infections on Nov 27. That compares with 39,791 new cases a day earlier.

The backlash against Covid restrictions is a setback for China's efforts to eradicate the virus, which is infecting record numbers of people and raising concern about the economic toll of lockdowns on the world’s second-largest economy.
