After COVID in China subsided in 2020, CCP’s general secretary Xi Jinping vowed that China had won the “people’s war” over the pandemic.
According to Creaders, Xi also mentioned that the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP’s) institutional advantage had contributed to the foundation for the successful implementation of the “zero-COVID” policy based on lockdown and strict control of the people.
On December 18, Miles Yu, Director of the China Center at the Hudson Institute, commented that the CCP wanted to maintain the zero-COVID policy to show the world the “superiority” of the CCP and to show the world what the right path is.
However, within a short time, COVID returned to China. The strict lockdown measures implemented by the CCP have caused the Chinese economy to plummet. A series of consequences have led to single reactions, such as the Sitong overpass event or a protest with many participants like the White Paper movement.
The protests forced the CCP to change. But they changed too quickly.
As a result, observers believe that the sudden removal of the zero-COVID policy by the CCP has caused the pandemic to break out strongly in recent days, with many deaths.
The CCP led China into a zero-COVID policy to force the economic crisis. Then they abruptly abandoned this policy to subject the Chinese to disaster again.
However, the CCP’s propaganda system insists that what the organization does is always proper and correct.
According to Creaders, People’s Daily, the mouthpiece of the CCP, on December 15, published an article titled “Three years of fighting the pandemic, we went together like this.”
The article mentioned the CCP’s “three-year anti-pandemic achievement.” It said the CCP has followed the times and trends and seized opportunities to optimize pandemic prevention policies.
The article also neglects the responsibility of the CCP to protect people’s health. Instead, it says that everyone must take responsibility for their own health.
