Lockdowns in China: locals cry for help; Chinese officials seal residents’ doors shut​




Authorities in China are taking harsh measures, working to control the country’s emerging virus outbreaks. Residents are reportedly sealed inside their homes if they don’t comply with harsh pandemic restrictions. The gate of a neighborhood is welded shut, soon after a confirmed virus case was discovered there. Residents living in some city highrises heard cries for help. Besides lockdown orders, the Swiss government calls out Beijing after Chinese media quoted a Swiss scientist who blamed the United States for the pandemic. But a background check revealed the person doesn’t seem to exist. A Chinese court sentences a Canadian citizen to 11 years in prison. But Canada’s prime minister calls it "unacceptable."

China’s biggest shipping port struck by virus; Quarantined mom begs for food for her child​



An elderly woman fell unconscious on the spot after getting dosed with China’s homegrown vaccine. She suffers from high blood pressure, diabetes, and asthma, but still was made to get the shot. Dozens of Chinese sailors are stuck on a cargo ship after testing positive for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. The first of them to get sick was also the vaccinated person on board. A section of the world’s biggest port shuts down after one confirmed virus case was detected. A mother is in tears, begging for food to feed her child. Lockdown orders kept her inside and isolated from grocery stores, while local food delivery was suspended.

China’s Zero Tolerance on Coronavirus Backfires | Zooming In China​



China’s zero tolerance policy on Covid-19 backfires as the numbers of those sick with the Delta variant continues to climb while mandated closures devastate the economy. The prices of necessary foods are rising, too, raising concerns that those most at risk may starve under this strong-handed approach. Chinese citizens who offer a voice of reason and promote a way to co-exist with the virus in order to keep the economy strong are being punished by the CCP. – Subscribe for updates: http://bit.ly/SimoneGao

Damaged river levee in Shaanxi causes flooding; Second round of heavy rains strike central China​



Torrential rains hit northern China, causing floods and landslides. A local river embankment collapsed, leaving behind a 50-foot breach. Video reveals a large number of virus isolation wards in Shanghai. Yet officials say no new CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus cases were found on Sunday. China’s top companies lost $3 trillion in total market value, amid Beijing’s efforts to tighten control on domestic businesses. Beijing passes one of the world’s strictest data control laws. But it’s not aimed at protecting users. As a result, companies suffer, including foreign firms doing business in China. In an unprecedented move by the Chinese communist regime, Beijing shuts down a local branch of a U.S. auditing company after it had investigated forced labor in China’s Xinjiang region.

China reports 1st Anthrax death in 10 years; US expels students with Chinese military ties​



Anthrax, a deadly and highly infectious disease, is surfacing in China. Among the confirmed patients, one has died. The United States is offering up to $5 million for information on a Chinese fentanyl trafficker. But Beijing is defending the man. A fleet of U.S. and UK aircraft carriers is sailing near China, carrying hundreds of long-range missiles. Together, they make up one of the world’s most powerful fleets. A think-tank poll hints at Americans’ view on Taiwan. Data shows over half would support the government in sending troops to defend the island. The Chinese communist regime is driving private companies to make big donations in the name of creating “prosperity for all.” But the money may not be helping who it should.

China’s second-largest housing firm in dire debt crisis; Taliban wants stronger China relations​



America’s longest war is over. But why did the United States pull its troops out of Afghanistan? President Joe Biden says it’s to shift priorities to meet the China challenge. The Taliban describes the Chinese Communist Party as an old friend and says it hopes to foster even stronger relations. Another of China’s friendly relationships is deepening, too. Military leaders from Burma, also known as Myanmar, invited a Chinese representative to visit for the first time since the country’s coup earlier this year. One of China’s largest real estate companies is deep in debt, to the tune of $300 billion. But if the company goes bankrupt, it would send shock waves through China’s economy.

China’s Three Gorges Dam hits 23-year high; Gene test linked to Chinese military sold to world​



Nations are scrutinizing a Chinese-made genetics test. The test is used on pregnant women around the world. And the company that produces it has ties to the Chinese military. When exactly did the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus outbreak begin in Wuhan? A top epidemiologist reveals he first heard about it back in mid-December 2019—two weeks before it was reported to the World Health Organization. China’s Three Gorges Dam sees a 23-year record high water level. Landslides strike China in at least three areas, destroying homes and killing several people along the way. NATO voices concerns about China’s nuclear expansion. And a European country no longer wants its ambassador in China. This comes after a disagreement with Beijing over Taiwan’s opening of a de-facto embassy.

Over 900 documents verify U.S. funds backed research on various coronaviruses carried out at Wuhan’s infamous Virology Institute. Chinese real estate companies are going bankrupt. They’ve recently been driven into crisis, as authorities impose new policies on the industry. Cases of newly diagnosed leukemia appear in China. Doctors made the discovery after the patients got vaccinated. Four members of a pro-democracy group have been arrested in Hong Kong. It’s the same group that organizes an annual June 4 rally to commemorate those who died in the bloody 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.
