The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has just released research on the Covid-19 epidemic. Unfortunately, the study is another sign of bitter conflicts within the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

The research examined 33,816 cases of infection with the Omicron variant between April 22 and May 3.

Of those, only 22 are seriously ill. The rate of severe disease in the high-risk group was only 0.238%. The reported risk group is patients over 60 years of age or with weakened immune systems.

This research shows China doesn’t need to impose extreme blockade measures to combat the Covid-19 epidemic.

Because the research echoes the prevailing view in the international medical community that Omicron is contagious, but the symptoms, in general, are mild and severe cases and death cases are very low. In addition, the lead author of the research, professor Zhang Wenhong, proposed China should live with Covid-19.

The ET reporter discovered that the link to the original English-language text of the research had been removed by noon on June 22, Beijing time.

Chen Kuide, executive chairman of the Princeton China Society, told ET on June 22 that China’s CDC was clearly under pressure to remove the research.

He said, currently, the CCP is in a period of uncertainty, and there are sharp conflicts within it. That’s why the research was deleted.

Chen Kuide believes that Zhang Wenhong’s research signals a new awakening for the Chinese people.

Chen said that Zhang was originally a Chinese regime doctor. But he still expressed his opinion without fear—a signal that the Chinese people are becoming braver.

Gu Guoping, a retired university teacher in Shanghai, told Epoch Times on June 21 that Zhang’s research revealed internal infighting at the highest levels of the CCP.

Gu said that while CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping wanted to maintain the “Zero-Covid” policy, Premier Li Keqiang opposed it.
