China says the Kovid epidemic has infected 80 percent of the population

A major wave of Covid-19 is unlikely to recur in China in the next two or three months, as 80 percent of people are infected, a government scientist said on Saturday.

Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist of the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said that mass movement of people during the ongoing Lunar New Year holiday period may spread the epidemic and increase infections in some regions, but a second wave of Kovid is not possible in the near term.

Hundreds of millions of Chinese are struggling with the recently eased Covid restrictions. underHe travels around the country for suspended holiday gatherings, raising fears of new outbreaks in rural areas less equipped to manage major outbreaks.

China’s fever clinics, emergency rooms and critically ill Covid patients are on the rise, a National Health Committee official said on Thursday.

According to government information, about a month after China abruptly abolished its zero-Kovid policy, approximately 60,000 Kovid patients died in the hospital with the prestige of January 12.

However, some experts said that they excluded those who died in the residence and that many physicians did not show Kovid as the cause of death.
