On the evening of September 30, China’s State Council held a reception to celebrate the National Day of the People’s Republic of China.
500 Chinese Communist Party (CCP) high-ranking officials participated in the celebration. Photos and information about this party have been spreading on the internet since then.
What encourages ordinary citizens and the media to debate is that all did not wear masks, from General Secretary Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang to lower party officials. However, this is mandatory when people gather in large numbers in China.
Writer Zhou Xiaohui raised six questions in Timednews on this matter. Let’s see 4 of these notable questions.
First, according to China’s anti-pandemic regulations, when in crowded places, people must wear masks. So, why didn’t the 500 CCP officials do this?
Secondly, people who want to go to crowded places must have a certificate of a negative nucleic acid test within 48 hours. Did these 500 people get this certificate? If it is said that these 500 people are exempted, why do ordinary citizens still have to comply?
Third, the Chinese CDC knows that such a large gathering is incorrect. Can it pose a sanitary risk? So, why hasn’t the CDC spoken out yet? Why didn’t the police intervene? Is the CCP propaganda about democracy in China false?
Fourth, supposing the 500 high-ranking CCP officials in this party caused a new outbreak, who is to blame?
