CHINA: Xi’an food shortages after lockdown lead to chaos; 41,000 cops deployed

Commentator Han Dapeng said the lockdown doesn’t appear to be preventing the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, however.

“They used this total lockdown method on Wuhan last year, but Omicron is still going strong,” Han said. “Yet the rates of fatality and severe disease are both very low.”

“I don’t think this Xi’an lockdown is about disease prevention,” he said. “It’s more about controlling the population.”
