The People's Daily in China says the country must not waver from its zero COVID policy.
- Says that the policy is sustainable
- Says that the policy is essential for stabilising the economy
The 5 yearly Congress is coming up from the 16th, Xi is expected to cement a third term. Maybe he'll loosen up a bit after this? Dunno. I've seen pundits tipping zero COVID policy through until March 2023 at the earliest. Its taking a toll on China's economy despite what people's Daily is spouting.
