I am just completely confused by what the news is saying, the source of all info to us. There's no continuity in their reporting at all. I'm v sure all the papers up until few weeks ago wrote abt China and its unduly onerous zero covid policy, a bad move made by Xi he can't recall w/o losing face so now residents locked away made to test test vaccine and test just to fulfil the zero part - oh dear how will China catch up.
Now the unduly onerous part is gone. Sudden uturn w no logical explanation why - all true. But why would that suddenly change the whole narrative to abruptly dismantled restrictions that had contained the disease, vacc rates poor, so unprepared and now hell is breaking loose.. what does that even mean, so not really unduly onerous under zero covid then.. What happened to the narrative from before??
