The definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result.
That is covid lockdowns in a nutshell.
China is yet again in the throes of collapsing its own economy as it continues to keep its citizens locked down in Shanghai to continue the covid theater.
An employee from the Chinese Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has said that the lockdowns are destroying Shanghai and bringing it “to the brink of collapse.” No kidding.
Lockdowns didn’t work at the beginning, they didn’t work in the middle and they still don’t work now.
The Shanghai CDC, was forced to demand that its staff answer public inquiries accurately, and “in line with the policy” due to mass confusion about what’s going on. They recently rolled out a PCR testing scheme and it’s causing chaos.
Residents who have been locked down are complaining about results being inaccurate, as home tests are giving negative results, while tests done by the CDC are coming back positive. It’s no secret that PCR tests are and continue to be unreliable.
Shanghai rolled out an app named Healthcare Cloud, integrated into its Internet and Healthcare platform, and residents were instructed to register for a PCR test through the app and they would receive their results through their phone.
Mass confusion ensued when negative results were given, only to be notified by the CDC that their test was positive and that they will have to quarantine.
There has been a leaked recording of a conversation between a CDC expert and a caller on the CDC’s holiness and the expert reveals that systems are completely overwhelmed.
“We have received hundreds of calls every day, but our jobs are epidemiological investigations,” the expert is heard saying. “We can’t solve your problem.”
“Let me tell you the facts: There’s no ward, the quarantine sites are filled, and there’s no ambulance.”
A male is then heard complaining:
“But we have no way to address our issue, even Weibo is blocked.”
The female expert responds:
“I have brought this up too many times; as an expert, I have suggested that the mild to no symptom patients stay at home. Does anyone listen? No!”
“Let me reiterate,” she continued, “do not bother checking your health cloud, it’s all a negative result. Only we will notify you when you have tested positive.”
“So what we see is all fake?” the man then asks in return.
“That’s right,” the expert confirmed. She also encouraged the caller to go public with the details, which he appears to have done.
During her rant, the CDC expert continued to reveal that the whole thing is one big fallacy and Shanghai is collapsing because of it and overworked staff are struggling to keep up with resident complaints.
“This pandemic has become a political issue that’s consuming so much manpower, resources, and money, just to solve this flu-like disease,” she explained. “What other country do you think is doing this kind of epidemic prevention now?”
Currently, only China is carrying on with this type of response, although in New Zealand, where they have had border closures and strict lockdowns nearly the entire time.
They are reconsidering the government’s “traffic light” system going back to red, after an uptick in cases and deaths – coming just as vaccine mandates have been dropped.
The Shanghai CDC expert was later revealed to be Zhu Weiping – director of the Infectious Disease Prevention and Control Section of the Shanghai Pudong New Area CDC.
Weiping is now being hit with a barrage of criticism from supporters of the Chinese communists, and they are accusing her of “an aggressive attack on the party” and “sabotaging and shaking the anti-epidemic deployment.”
Truth tellers never fare well under tyrants.
