According to a well-known government expert, there is little chance of a significant COVID-19 comeback in China during the next two to three months because 80% of the population is infected.
According to Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist at the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention, a second Covid wave is highly improbable in the near future despite the fact that the pandemic may spread due to the large number of people traveling during the current Lunar New Year holiday period, boosting infections in some areas.
As a result of newly loosened Covid limits, hundreds of millions of Chinese are traveling across the nation for holiday reunions, raising concerns about new outbreaks in rural areas that are less prepared to handle significant outbreaks.
According to a National Health Commission official, the number of Covid patients in China’s fever clinics, ERs, and with serious conditions has peaked.
According to government statistics, about 60,000 Covid patients had passed away in hospitals as of Jan. 12, or about a month after China abruptly ended its zero-Covid policy.
However, other authorities claimed that number likely grossly underestimates the real impact because it doesn’t include people who pass away at home and because many medical professionals have stated they are discouraged from listing Covid as a reason for death.
