According to the Epoch Times’s report on October 1, a Taiwanese named Chen Xin died on September 18 in Xiamen, Fujian province, China, allegedly due to the constraints of the “zero-COVID” policy.

According to CNA, on September 17, Chen flew from Taiwan to China and was quarantined at Xiamen International Health Station. A day later, Chen died from a massive hemorrhage.

In the isolation center, Chen had health problems. He called the emergency service seven times. After waiting more than an hour, he was finally taken to the hospital by ambulance.

A Taiwanese businessman said that before being transferred to the hospital, Chen vomited a lot of blood.

On September 28, a Taiwanese reporter asked Zhu Fenglian, a spokeswoman of the Taiwan Affairs Office, whether China’s pandemic prevention measures slowed down the emergency process and caused Chen’s death.

Zhu replied that the Chinese authorities had made efforts and fulfilled their responsibilities while rescuing Chen.

The “Zero-COVID” policy is based on devoting all resources to COVID prevention. But unfortunately, its strict management procedures, such as lockdown, have led to many deaths because of delayed treatment.

Economist Larry Hsien Ping Lang said his mother had kidney failure in April. She went to the hospital to ask for an emergency, but the hospital cited the “zero-COVID” policy and that she must have a negative PCR test before being examined.

While waiting for the PCR test, Larry’s mother died.

A 17-month-old child died in August in Yining city, Xinjiang. The father of this child could not take his child to the hospital because of the lockdown. 

He eventually called the police, and the child was taken to the hospital but did not survive. Sadly, the doctor said that it could have been saved if the child had been brought to the hospital 10 minutes earlier.
