The anger has to come out. Many people are still taking to the streets in China. The reason: the country’s zero-Covid strategy. Under the leadership of Xi Jinping (69), China is the last major economy to enforce ultra-strict corona restrictions – and has been for almost three years. Even small outbreaks can result in entire cities being locked down. According to estimates, hundreds of millions of people and around a fifth of the economy are currently being affected by lockdowns.

Despite all the uprisings and unrest since the weekend, the government initially remained firm. The police presence was increased and the protests put down. A news blackout was also imposed in connection with the demos.
