Despite the measures of the Chinese Communist Party’s zero-COVID policy, the pandemic in China is increasing.

Vision Times reported that on November 21, 2,145 new infections and nearly 26,000 asymptomatic infections were recorded in 31 provinces. The number of infections has exceeded 20,000 for seven consecutive days.

On November 21, two deaths were recorded due to COVID, including one in Henan province and one in Sichuan province.

Previously, Beijing had recorded three deaths, two reported on the 20th and one registered on the 19th, although the unofficial count may be much higher.

Vision Times cited an expert predicting that by mid-December, China will suffer simultaneously from the COVID pandemic and a flu epidemic.

Data from the Beijing Municipal Health Commission indicates that the number of people infected with COVID in Beijing is increasing daily.

On November 18, there were 515 new infections. On the 19th, the number of new infections was 621. On the 20th, this number increased to 962 cases, and on the 21st, the number of new infections was 1,438.

According to Reuters, on November 21, China had 28,127 new cases of COVID in 31 provinces and cities.

The leading localities in the number of infections are mostly China’s major economic centers.

Guangdong topped the list with 9,022 cases, followed by Chongqing with 6,335, Sichuan with 1,061, and Beijing with 1,438.

Statistics show that nearly 1.5 million Chinese in the country are at risk of contracting COVID. These are people who are in close contact with infected patients.
