Who Knew There Were So Many REPUBLICANS in CHINA ?

We are told that Republicans and other Deplorables are responsible for prolonging the pandemic, being anti-science and killing thousands of fellow Americans. Given the below, did you know that there were so many Republicans in China?

 

Vaccine hesitancy is an American phenomena based on ideology we are told, even though non-white hesitancy is higher than the national average while non-white vax rates are below the average. 

 

And when you look at the potential policy responses over there, do they remind you more of the views here of Democrats or Republicans?

Get Vaxxed or Stay Home, Some Local Chinese Governments Say

Some areas are planning to restrict people from public venues unless they get shots, sparking criticism

Several local governments in China are planning to bar residents who haven’t been vaccinated against Covid-19 from accessing public venues, stirring controversy as the country makes a push for herd immunity.

 

In recent days, a dozen counties and cities in the eastern provinces of Zhejiang, Fujian and Jiangxi set late-August deadlines for people 18 years or older to complete a two-shot vaccine regimen, according to similarly worded online statements. Many of them also set dates in late July by which unvaccinated people would be barred from entering schools, libraries, prisons, nursing homes and inpatient facilities at hospitals without a valid medical exemption.

 

Some of the localities attributed their new policies to “national, provincial and municipal arrangements,” without explaining whether they received a decree from the central government.

 

China is dealing with sporadic outbreaks of Covid-19 and authorities have been offering homegrown vaccines free of charge since last December.

 

The government notices have sparked online pushback from some Chinese and triggered a debate—as in the U.S. and elsewhere—about whether people should be required to present proof of inoculation to travel, work or undertake other routine activities outside their home

 

 

Chinese authorities have fully vaccinated more than 40% of the country’s 1.4 billion people, putting its vaccination rate nearly on par with that of the U.S., which has fully vaccinated roughly 48% of its population.

 

Chinese authorities want to achieve herd immunity by the end of the year and are aware that the homegrown vaccines they are using aren’t as effective as the mRNA-based vaccines that are available in the West and which haven’t yet been approved for use in China. A top Chinese health official last month increased his projection of the vaccination level at which community transmission would stop to 80%-85% of the Chinese population.

 

More than a year after the pandemic first exploded within China, the country has kept its border restrictions mostly in place, largely due to worries about imported cases spreading domestically. Beijing is hosting the Winter Olympics in February 2022. . . .

 

The vaccination mandates come after months in which Chinese authorities have tried to entice citizens to get inoculated by offering free milk, eggs and bubble tea—and in one city, the chance to win a free night in a luxury hotel. Some schools urged their students to get the shot, while ride-hailing companies such as Didi Global Inc. have required drivers to get vaccinated. At many state-owned firms, getting vaccinated is seen as an act of duty.

 

China’s National Health Commission hasn’t declared a nationwide vaccination mandate, nor has it signaled to the public that it will. It didn’t respond to a request for comment.

 

Tao Lina, a former immunologist at the Shanghai Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said that it wouldn’t be appropriate for the central government to explicitly require people to take vaccines, but he said many more localities would follow suit and that Beijing wouldn’t stop them. . . .

 

News of vaccination mandates has been met with skepticism on Chinese social media, with some users saying the local authorities were going too far.

 

It “goes against the government’s original pledge that vaccinations would be voluntary,” wrote one user on Twitter-like Weibo, expressing a sentiment widely repeated across the platform.

 

A woman surnamed Wang wrote that she opposed the policy even though she had already gotten two shots. It would be unfair for people who couldn’t get vaccinated due to pre-existing medical conditions to have to then explain their conditions in public in order to enter venue sites, she wrote. She is from Jinan, Shandong province, where local authorities haven’t published such mandates.

 

Surveys by universities in China and the U.S. suggest that Chinese people are more accepting of Covid-19 vaccines compared with Americans. Still, some Chinese have balked at getting vaccinated because they feel the risk of infection inside China is low. Many also don’t trust Chinese vaccines to be safe and effective, in part because of past vaccine safety scandals.....

 

Public-health experts say that persuading additional people to get vaccinated becomes harder as a country’s campaign proceeds. China’s seven-day rolling average of new vaccinations has fallen below 11 million per day from a peak of 22 million on June 24, according WSJ calculations based on figures from China’s National Health Commission.

 

China’s central government has sent signals that further measures are needed to get more people vaccinated. At an April press conference, senior government health official Wu Liangyou said Beijing would roll out “targeted propaganda” to boost confidence in Chinese vaccines. Still, he insisted at the time that vaccinations would take place under “the principle of voluntariness.”

Zhejiang, Fujian and Jiangxi are in the south of China and the residents tend to be darker than northern Han Chinese.  So there you go.

They have to go over to China to make sure the sweat shops are making their products to specification.

^^^ This is what qualifies as a response to vaccine hesitancy in China. The Zakster continues to be so distraught with severe TDS that he things everything is about Trump. 

 

Zak - I appreciate that your thread on the GOP extending the pandemic crapped the bed weeks ago, but is this the best you can do in response here?
