Authorities implementing Beijing’s “zero-COVID” policy often make absurd cases happen. For example, an older man’s nucleic acid test report in Shanghai is updated regularly after his death. As a result, some people suspect that nucleic acid testing companies are scams, while others suspect that the communist regime “manipulates” the epidemic situation.
On Sept. 12, some netizens revealed nucleic acid test records from Shanghai, showing that a citizen named “** zhen” had nucleic acid samples taken on August 31, September 3, and September 7 at Shanghai’s Yangpu District Traditional Medicine Hospital. Miraculously, he received negative test results the same day.
According to NTDTV, netizens said that the owner of this test record is an older man from Shanghai who passed away on Aug. 3. His family was surprised when they discovered his test nucleic acid report and code are still being updated. There is a report every three or four days.
Netizens joked that this was “a nucleic acid test report from heaven” and questioned China’s official media about from where the nucleic acid test sample came.
At this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival, famous Chinese artist Chen Gang also launched a series of paintings of Chang’e (Chinese goddess of the Moon) scanning barcodes and wearing masks in the Moon Palace. NTDTV also said that people had spread images of Chang’e doing PCR tests on the Moon to mock the “normalization of testing” in China. Some netizens scoffed that it might not be surprising if the deceased older man took a nucleic acid test in heaven.
Not long ago, in Dongxing City, a border city in Guangxi, rumors spread that some residents had received positive reports of deceased family members. Some people who had left Dongxing for many days also received positive reports. Local people suspect someone is deliberately “creating an epidemic” to continue making money from epidemic prevention.
Since the CCP launched large-scale nucleic acid testing, scandals about “false positives” and “false reports” have continued. Some analysts argue that the manpower and material resources of China’s existing nucleic acid testing companies cannot support nucleic acid testing on such a scale, so they could have faked a large number of them. Others suggested that local officials colluded with testing companies to “create epidemics” to make money.
According to NTDTV, some commentators speculate that the CCP regime is unstable and may use “epidemic prevention” as an excuse to strengthen control. Previously, it was reported that some local police departments were “exempt from testing.” A few days ago, a video showed a nucleic acid test scene inside a local police agency where the police were only queuing to scan codes, not taking samples. In the video, a group of people, many in uniform, lined up with mobile phones in hand. A woman was sitting at a table next to the line of people. She repeatedly tore the packaging off the swab sample and inserted the cotton directly into the sample vial.
