Reported by NTD News, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) announced on July 29 that it had vaccinated more than 1.6 billion doses of the CCP vaccine, while the outbreak of the Delta variant virus in Nanjing on July 20 has spread to 26 cities in 15 provinces. The effectiveness of the Chinese vaccine has once again been questioned by the outside world.
According to the official website of the National Health Commission (NHC) of the Communist China, as of July 28, 1.6 billion 1.249 million doses of vaccines against the CCP virus have been injected in mainland China.
According to official regulations, the vast majority of Chinese people over the age of 18 have already been vaccinated, and in many parts of the country have extended the vaccine age downward since July, giving priority to minors aged 12 to 17 in an attempt to increase vaccine coverage.
But the recent rapid spread of the epidemic has revealed the ineffectiveness of the CCP’s vaccine. A local outbreak of Delta variant virus at Nanjing Lukou International Airport on the 20th July has been spreading rapidly across the country.
According to the Chinese media, the number of cases in Nanjing has risen to 171 in just 9 days, and the outbreak involves 26 cities in 15 provinces.
The big show “Charming Xiangxi” in Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province, has become a breakthrough of the cluster infection. In many places, people with no history of neither living or traveling to Nanjing got infected. Since the infected people from Nanjing were reported being at the performance in the evening of the 22nd July, now more than 2,000 audiences of that show have been notified as high-risk groups.
The rapid spread of the outbreak in Nanjing has prompted people to question again the effectiveness of the vaccine made in China. One blog Netizens said, “Why did you still infect the Coronavirus (CCP virus) even after getting the vaccine?
Other netizens criticized officials for over-promoting the vaccine, causing people to be lax in their prevention efforts.
Zhang Wenhong, a medical expert in Shanghai, said in an article published on the 29th that the current outbreak in Nanjing, and Guangzhou last time, people infected were all vaccinated. In the future, vaccination will still not be able to fully control the continuation and recurrence of the epidemic.
Zhang Wenhong said that most virologists in the world now recognize that the CCP virus (coronavirus) is a host resident virus, and that the world needs to learn to live with it.
He said that the Nanjing outbreak has once again shown people that the virus is ever-present. Whether people like it or not, there will always be risks ahead. And China has to be prepared to live with the virus for a long time.
Earlier, it was reported that the effectiveness of the Chinese vaccine has also been increasingly questioned internationally.
I lnate June, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi publicly questioned the effectiveness of Communist China’s vaccine, citing Chile as an example. In Indonesia, at least 10 doctors died after receiving two doses of the Chinese vaccine, which is a cause for concern.
